Écrans Noirs is a film festival that originated in Yaoundé, Cameroon. It was founded in 1997 by Bassek Ba Kobhio, a renowned Cameroonian filmmaker and critic, with the aim of promoting African cinema and providing a platform for African filmmakers to showcase their work. It has been characterised as “Central Africa’s largest cinema’s event”. The festival’s name, Écrans Noirs, translates to “Black Screens” in English. This name symbolizes the festival’s focus on African cinema, which often remains unseen or underrepresented on the global stage.

Écrans Noirs Festival showcases a diverse range of films, including feature films, documentaries, short films, and animations, from various African countries. In addition to film screenings, Écrans Noirs also organizes workshops, conferences, and masterclasses to provide educational opportunities for aspiring filmmakers and industry professionals.
