The Reel Africa Film Festival is a free-of-charge film festival featuring a selection of recent documentaries on African themes. This is the third year the festival will run. It has been funded by Irish Aid as part of the nationwide schedule of events to mark Africa Day on May 25th 2010. This year the festival will take place on Monday May 24th, the day before Africa Day.

This festival will allow students of film nationwide, along with interested members of the public to experience documentaries on African themes, in an intimate setting, with the opportunity to meet directors and partake in seminars & discussions about their work.

The Reel Africa Film Festival is taking place in Dundalk Institute of Technology on
May 24th. DKIT campus is the ideal location for such a festival, with numerous venues available for film screenings. In recent years, the campus has been extended and boasts two Black Box Theatres along with numerous state of the art lecturing theatres in which screenings, seminars and discussions will take place. Excellent transport links also exist to Dundalk via rail & road and the college is only a 40 minute drive from Dublin airport via the M1.

A student short film competition is also taking place in conjunction with the festival - please see the competition page for more details.
