Berlinale Africa Hub

“The twenty-first century will be an African century”
(Achille Mbembe, Cameroon/South Africa)

“Of the world’s top ten countries with the youngest populations, eight are in sub-Sahara Africa. By 2050, the region will be home to all 10.” (World Bank)


The Berlinale Africa Hub at the EFM taps into the African hotbed of new ideas and is a market platform to rediscover, connect to and get the latest updates from well-known and emerging professionals from all over Sub-Sahara Africa. Apart from functioning as a hub for the fine fleur of African industry professionals, it enables EFM visitors to set up meetings with them and learn about what's going on. The Berlinale Africa Hub is focused first and foremost on changes in the industry triggered by innovations.

The “Berlinale Africa Hub” is an initiative of the European Film Market (EFM), supported by the Federal Foreign Office and in cooperation with the World Cinema Fund, Berlinale Talents (including its sister programme Talents Durban), and the Berlinale Co-Production Market.
