And after a week of feverish activity, the 2016 edition of the Africa International Film Festival has come to a close. We’ve kept a close eye and this year has seen significant buzz for new hands, in particular Ojukokoro and Green White Green (which we’ve had our eyes on for some time now). The event wrapped up last night with an awards show largely swept by ’76 (anticipation couldn’t possibly be more high for this film, at this point,) 93 Days, and Green White Green.
