Navigating Africa in Motion (AiM) 2020 online

This year AiM will be held entirely online and will be available to audiences across the UK.

The festival will run from 30 October - 29 November, with new films and events taking place each day. We encourage our audience to “Watch Live” along with us at the time and date listed on the event page, but all films will be available for 48 hours after this, playable directly on the Africa in Motion website.

All films in the programme are geo-blocked to the UK only.

Buy a Ticket (£2-8): Individual tickets will be available for every feature film, documentary and short film package, and can be purchased on a sliding scale price of ‘pay what you can’ (£2, £4, £6, £8) by credit/debit card, Apple Pay and Google Pay. You can purchase tickets for all Films and Events in advance of or on the screening date and you will be emailed a unique viewing link (Note: if you purchase in advance, you will be emailed your link 2 hours before it goes live). If the event features more than one film (e.g. a shorts package), your viewing link will give you access to all Included Films.
