Flowers always remind us of springtime, and South Africa hosts colourful flower related events like the Magoebaskloof Spring festival. Other exciting springtime festivals range from film, culture, art and technology across Africa. The Pan-African film festival (FESPACO) in Burkina Faso is one, and the Zanzibar International Film Festival (Festival of Dhow countries) is considered East Africa’s largest multi-cultural event of the culture and arts of several regional countries, Indian ocean islands and Iran, India, Gulf States and Pakistan. There are concerts, readings, and educational activities with the film competition in the historical breath-taking settings of the Stone Town seafront and beyond to rural areas through a Village Panoroma.
At the moment it may be difficult to imagine travelling for these festivals. This is why the Africa Center Hong Kong has decided to bring some of this excitement to you with our novel virtual travel program! This will take you on live experiential tours of beautifully diverse and multi-cultural African countries in these times of restricted international travel. Come and join us live to virtually experience the sights and sounds of Africa from the East to the North, West and Southern parts of the continent.
