Mobile Lab SENEGAL 2024

Curated by 2022 Impact Awardee Alain Gomis.

Mobile Lab Senegal

Films have a profound impact on culture and society. They shape attitudes, influence values, and catalyze social transformation. Films can also serve as a potent medium for communication, effectively conveying messages in a captivating and distinctive manner.

Our second Mobile Lab in 2024 takes us to Senegal, where film director, screenwriter, and 2022 Impact Awardee, Alain Gomis, curates a programme of screenings, workshops, a concert, and various public events.

The 2024 Mobile Lab Senegal centres film as a medium to address the complexities of identity, foreignness, and agency, drawn from Alain Gomis’ personal experiences dealing with a dual French-Senegalese nationality and his own search of belonging. Through showcasing the work of inspiring filmmakers and facilitating workshops, the Lab aims to advocate for the urgency of nurturing local talents in film creation, broadcasting, and technical skills, to make African film heritage accessible to a community of filmmakers and to encourage a new generation of artists to narrate their unique stories.
