The Forum is designed to promote awareness about the power of the documentary format to serve as a means of deepening and sharing social and cultural education as well as encouraging participatory democracy in African societies.

Last year’s edition, with the theme ‘Unfiltered: African Stories. Stories from Africa’, featured 80 films from 28 countries across four continents, the event addressed the global media’s representations of Africa and their role in perpetuating harmful stereotypes.

Attendees and stakeholders described the cultural carnival as an unforgettable experience for the quality of the film offerings and the insightful conversations they generated.

This year, the programme list features screenings, presentations, panel discussions, and a training workshop for aspiring filmmakers, the iRep film festival appeals to seasoned veterans and industry newbies alike.
