On June 9-11, 2017, Galle Ceddo Projects, in conjunction with dozens of African institutions, artists, filmmakers, municipalities and schools, presented The Sembene Across Africa project, the largest grassroots cinema event in African history. The three-day series included more than 130 public screenings, as well as seminars, house parties and workshops, featuring the award-winning documentary film SEMBENE! and screenings of films by Ousmane Sembene, “the father of African cinema.” SEMBENE! also was broadcast in 30+ countries on the continent, with free streaming across the globe, in an effort to re-introduce Africa to one of its most inspiring unsung heroes.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
