US-Embassy Partners With Eko Film Festival


The US-Embassy on American Documentary Showcase has collaborated  with one of Africa’s largest film festivals – The Eko International Film Festival.
The festival is a key part of our cultural infrastructure: that inspires audiences, artists, filmmakers and professionals from other parts of the world.

This program comes out from US State Department Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA). The American Film Showcase (AFS) provides a platform for both PAS and our partner organization to explore important themes such as freedom of expression, conflict resolution, civil rights, climate change, disability rights, economic development, and women’s empowerment, and through this program engage and empower key audiences, especially youth, and marginalized communities.

The festival will also address issues such as

*                    The value of diversity,
*                    Tolerance,
*                    Civil society engagement,
*                    Conflict mitigation and the 
                      empowerment of youth,
*                    Women and girls.
