"The Lights, Camera, Africa!!! Film Festival through its consistently bold representation of diverse African cinema shares its sixth edition with a theme that is perhaps the most appropriate motifs for its native city. Lagos is a shrine to rich and varying soundscape that embraces diverse art forms and diverse music. A physical statement, a motif for the communities it builds through the sounds that reverberate," the organizers said in an official press release.

"‘Music Makes the People…’ will be a feast of vibrant sounds, rhythms, emotions and moving images as we dedicate three days to screening the best of emerging, fresh, independent African cinema and in particular celebrating the musical voice of film as an art form."

Over the years, the cultural fiesta has had support from Nollywood practitioners including Peace Anyiam-Osigwe, John Akomfrah OBE, Tunde Kelani, Pascal Ott, Ego Boyo, Kate Henshaw, Victor Ehikhamenor, Ed Keazor, Chika Anadu, Pierre Cherruau, Remi Vaughan-Richards, Lala Akindoju, O.C Ukeje, Debie Mangut, Shaibu Husseini and Jahman Anikulapo.

The 2016 Lights, Camera, Africa!!! Film Festival will hold at Federal Palace Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos.
