Filmography of Works by African Women
 


Includes the filmography published in
Sisters of the Screen: Women of Africa on Film Video and Television, Africa World Press, 2000.

This filmography does not claim to be exhaustive.  It includes most of the fiction films, documentaries and tele-films that have appeared in international film festivals or many that have been programmed locally.  Other works listed are drawn from various sources that have documented filmmaker biographies, or from film-related literature and websites.  Perhaps the areas that are least represented are television programs and series, commissioned, institutional and educational films.

Please return from time to time as new information is added

THIS FILMOGRAPHY IS NEITHER EXHAUSTIVE NOR DEFINITIVE
