What is AfroBerlin

The inaugural edition of AfroBerlin is organized in collaboration with the European Film Market at the Berlinale on Saturday, 17 February, 2024.


AfroBerlin will offer a unique opportunity for attendees to discuss and interact with the key players of the African film industry and to better understand the rationale behind its phenomenal growth.


With a series of panel discussions, strategic insights, and presentations, AfroBerlin will help further inform production companies, distribution partners and financiers on the marketability of content produced by African, Afro-descended filmmakers and creatives from various minorities.


AfroBerlin aims at connecting creatives, businesses and stakeholders from the entire film ecosystem at the busiest film market in the world, the European Film Market at the Berlinale.
