Rod Stoneman and James Finlan of NUI Galway’s Huston School of Film & Digital Media have travelled to Western Africa for the continent’s largest film festival, FESPACO. Held in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, the film festival first started 40 years ago and has evolved into an internationally renowned event.
The team from NUI Galway will continue a long-standing collaboration with the Imagine Film School in Ouagadougou, by running a newsreel workshop for its students. The resulting newsreels will be shown on television and in cinemas throughout Ouagadougou as part of the festival, which runs 28th February–7th March.
