Screenings and talks with film directors:
Network of Hate by Rokhaya Diallo - When Rokhaya Diallo, an avid user of social media, received a tweet inciting others’ to rape her for her liberal views, the battle against hate speech became personal. The journalist documents her journey for justice in this documentary that will be screened in the Birchwood Cinema, followed by a question and answer session with the filmmaker.
Also view a series of interviews and videos on hate speech in our 24 hours screening room.
In partnership with Africa’s leading cartoonists, this years’ AMLF will explore issues of hate speech, racism and xenophobia through editorial cartoons.
Awards Ceremony – The AMLF is also a time for celebration and this year’s gala dinner will be unparalleled, as we award African journalists with a range of prestigious prizes, including the Wan-Ifra/AMI joint award for ‘Women in Leadership; and the Africa Check Award, in collaboration with the AFP Foundation.
Plenary Approach - All forum deliberations will be held in plenary sessions, each with a keynote speech to set the tone, a moderator to direct the conversation and ensure audience participation, and a maximum of four panelists, each experts in their field.
Online presence: AMI has launched a Pan-African Campaign against hate speech. The AMLF might just last 2.5 days, but the campaign will go on beyond the event. We, along with our partners, want to make a long-lasting impact on the African media landscape, and putting a stop to hate speech is one step in that direction. Join the campaign online and help us #TurnthePageonHateSpeech.
