The small selection of feature films and documentaries  that are included in this ‘out of competition’ section are additional films which we would like to include in the programme, which we value and which we believe the Addis Abeba audience would appreciate.  Among them we are particularly pleased to be able to show the three feature Films of one of our feature film jurors, the Nigerian Director Newton Aduaka (Rage/Ezra and One Man’s Show); and the important ‘Mockumentary’ by Cameroun Director Jean-Pierre Bekolo that sets a challenge to spirit of Renaissance (The President); and the feature Kinshasa Kids by Marc-Henri Wajnberg.  Three engaging documentaries that are linked in their expressions of migration and Pan Africanism, complete the out of competition section:  Creativity in Exile:  Joy its Nina; and Messages by Music.
