We are delighted to host for the first time the Film Africa Baobab Award for Best Short Film, organised by the Royal African Society. Established in 2011, the Baobab Award exists to recognise and support emerging filmmaking across Africa and its diaspora. This first programme featuring five award-nominees includes My Love, Ethiopia that follows the turbulent and mystical journey of a young girl searching for freedom after being separated from her family; and DOLÁPOIS FINE, a coming-of-age story from the UK that is woven around the politics of hair and identity.

Showing online on Leeds Film Player from 3 November. Visit for more information.
