Festival of Films on Environmentpdf print preview print preview

The third edition of the Environmental Film Festival of Accra (EFFA) kicks off tomorrow at the British Council Hall in Accra.  Over 50 films comprising documentaries, animation and drama from around the world, will be screened free to the public at selected venues across the city during the ten-day festival.
Started in 2005, the purpose of EFFA is to raise awareness about environmental issues faced both here and abroad.
 
A special aspect of this year's festival is the inclusion of two short films made by children selected from schools in Accra.  One was shot in the heart of James Town and the other across Accra.
 
Kwesi Owusu CEO of Creative Storm Multimedia who co- directs the festival with Claudia D'Andrea, told Graphic Showbiz that the children, through workshops facilitated by the festival organizers, wrote down their concerns about the environment.  These were shaped into some kind of scripts and the children were taken out on location.
 
The special afternoon screenings for children introduced at last year's festival, were well received and will happen again this year."
 
Also part of the festival again this year is the open-air screening at the Holy Gardens near the Kwame Nkrumah Circle.  It has been scheduled for Saturday, April 21.  It scored very well with the large crowd that turned out for it last year and it is expected to be another day of good entertainment and education.
I Told You So, the comedy starring the late Bob Cole, Araba Stamp and Kweku Crankson, is one of the films to be shown at the open-air event which will incorporate performances by some leading artistes.
 
Films from and about Ghana feature prominently in this year’s festival. Apart from the historical Freedom For Ghana which will be screened at the festival launch, others lined up to be screened include Living The Hiplife, a film tracing the history of Hiplife, the economic hopes and musical dreams of young urban Ghanaians. Short and Tight attempts to explain the ampe game for girls and A Taste of Accra features candid interviews with Ghanaians of varying backgrounds living in Accra.  Witches In Exile has penetrating views with high-ranking government officials and human rights activists on banishment to isolated ‘witch villages.’
 
There are also Letter To Bob Geldorf, Hallelujah, Dammed By Relief, Sketches of Love, Panoply of Ghana and a rare clip on E. T. Mensah and the Tempos Band.
 
There is also a concentration on films from other African Countries.  Festival co-director Claudia D'Andrea said it was intentional so that the audience can relate more to the issues raised in them.  African countries that have contributed films to this year's EFFA include Liberia, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Angola, Mauritania, Mozambique, Mali, South Africa and Sudan.  There are also films fro the United States and France.
 
The Current energy crisis is the instigation for a panel discussion on whether Ghana should go nuclear energy.  The Environmental Protection Agency, the Energy Commission, NGOs and the Private Sector will be represented at the discussion which starts at 2:00 pm on Tuesday, April 24 at the British Council.
 
Venues for the free screenings are the Alliance Française, Goethe Instutut, British Council and Busy Internet.
