The 9th Pan-African Film Festival in Cannes will host the French premiere of “Bob Marley: the Making of a Legend” taken from footage shot at the time by former girlfriend Esther Anderson. Each year, the festival showcases cinema from across the African diaspora, with a healthy mix of movies, music and fashion. The festival runs from April 24 to 28, 2012.

Rare movies at Cannes

African cinema is rarely seen outside of Africa itself, with only a very few festivals worldwide devoting time to the new voices. The Pan-African Film Festival offers a unique opportunity to catch films from – this year – Morocco, Trinidad and Tobago,  Guadeloupe and elsewhere. In all, some 50 films will be shown this year.

International jury

This year’s honorary president is the Canadian actress and producer Tetchena BELLANGE. The jury will be headed by the Algerian director Mohammed Soudani. Concerts and gala dinners will be held at the Hotel Martinez and Hotel Miramar.

  1. Hear, hear. I remember seeing one of his many sons playing at a Stella Artois beach party in Cannes a good few years back.


  2. Im a music producer. Ive been producing hip hop beats for about 7 years.Recently Ive been considering learning an instrument to perfect my music production (transitions etc., Making my beats feel more live performance like) I was thinking of taking guitar or piano lessons. The only thing is, I kind of find it hard to practice the piano since it is kind of tedious to hook it up every night, and for the guitar Im not sure if it could help with my musc production at all (helping me to understand transitions and putting chrod progression into my beats) What do u all think? Do you have any experience with Guitar and idgital production? Im kind of going for a rock/hip hop sound anyway.

  3. George, who said learning piano is easy? Stretch your talent by all means, but don’t expect instant results.
