Africa Focus for International Rotterdam festival 27 Jan – 7 Feb 2010

LONDON — The next edition of the International Film Festival Rotterdam will include a major focus on African cinema, organizers said Thursday. Entitled “Where is Africa?,” organizers plan to unspool “the most extensive program devoted to independent African filmmaking at any Western film festival in recent years.” The 39th edition of the Dutch festival takes places Jan. 27 through Feb. 7 2010. Festival programmer Gertjan Zuilhof said: “There is no real reason to do it now other than that we maybe should have done it much earlier. It is obvious that Africa is not represented at international film festivals or if so only by one or two token films.”
