Sembène—The Arts and Film Festival is an international African film festival dedicated to Ousmane Sembène , – a revolutionary who used stories as his weapons.  A man whose mission was to give voice to the millions of voiceless, disenfranchised Africans across the continent.

The film festival is 10 years old and this season we're screening 30 films at three venue:  Alphabet City ; The Shop-Homewood  and Pitt's Community Engagement Center - Homewood.   All the films we screen are free to the public!
