YAZA Africa is the official media partner for the 4th edition of Pavillon Afriques. Pavillon Afriques is the home of African films during the Cannes Film Festival, an annual event scheduled in May in Cannes, France.

The 4th edition will take place between May 16 and 25, 2023. YAZA Africa will bring you the latest news and stories across its network of sites including What’s Hot Africa via The Hot Box section, as we gear up to the festival. 

Pavillon Afrique and YAZA Africa share the vision of empowering Africans to tell their stories.  

“Pavillon Afriques is proud to be a launch pad for YAZA as they aim to serve the entire continent while we reach an audience sensitive to the stories told by filmmakers from Africa and the Afro-descendants.”

"YAZA Africa exists to amplify the voices of the African people. Pavillon Afriques is a unique opportunity that allows us to further this course by sharing stories of the African film industry with the world.

"We are excited to partner with such a prestigious brand whose aim is also to give a platform to Africans to tell their own stories," says Agnes Amondi, Principal in charge of the project for YAZA AFRICA.

The first edition of the event was held in 2019 ad has attracted lots of interest from Africans from the continent and in the diaspora. In 2022, Cameroon, Central Africa, Gabon, Ghana, Republic of Guinea, Malawi, Mayotte, Kwa Zulu Natal South Africa and Uganda participated.

Pavillon Afrique lines up a series of workshops and screenings during the event meant to help the African film industry attain its goal.
