Beyond the narrow perspectives of the dominant European or US-American media, which mostly reduce the African continent to misery or exotism, African film makers shed a fresh light on the continent's developments and allow for a more differentiated insight into the diversity of the continent and its most pressing social challenges. Since 2004 AfricAvenir International e.V. regularly presents African movies and documentaries in its Film Series, but has since also organised school screenings, festivals, film seminars and film tours.
