Quartiers Lointains - (From distant neighborhoods) a traveling cinema program
Quartiers Lointains, the name conjures local quarters in far-flung districts, and more visually: experiencing the life of vibrant neighborhoods from afar—which reflects the films selected in the ongoing programming seasons.
The traveling cinema program, an initiative of Franco-Burkinabe journalist, film critic and activist Claire Diao, launched in 2013, navigates three continents: Europe, North America, Africa—with screenings of the growing cohort of afro-descendant French filmmakers—who in reality are part of what Claire Diao describes, "the Double Wave" of the contemporary French cinema landscape, giving "new energy to its film culture.
During each Quartiers Lointains Season, a theme is chosen to present the multifarious nature of the dynamic, multi-dimensional experiences of these "neighborhoods from afar."
The ongoing and continuing list of the Quartiers Lointains Seasons: Updated 13 November 2023
7th Season: Metamorphosis with patron/marraine Alice Diop
6th Season: Afrofuturistik with patron/marraine Selly Raby Kane
5th Season: Self-Image with patron/parrain Lucien Jean-Baptiste
4th Season: Justice with patron/marraine Jihan El Tahri
3rd Season: Love, à la French with patron/parrain Melvin Van Peebles
2nd Season: Family with patron/parrain Alain Gomis

A conversation with Twiggy Matiwana | Une conversation avec Twiggy Matiwana - South Africa | Afrique du Sud
What were your experiences with the moving image when growing up in South Africa?
|Still from The Bicycle Man|
The Bicycle Man shows a sensitive side of the manner in which a man deals with what is generally viewed as a woman’s illness: breast cancer. Talk about why you chose this theme and decided to tell the story in this way.
What have been the responses from the viewers? Men and women?
|Still from Bicycle Man|
Attending Fespaco 2017 was a first experience for you. I was able to follow a bit of your journey there via social media. It appears that you made some productive connections and useful contacts.
Ouaga was amazing, even though Fespaco was a bit frustrating at times because of the language barrier; winning best short film has brought me greater opportunities. I’ve made connections all around the world. The film is now screening in Angers in France; I will be attending Cannes Film Festival for the first time in my life. The Bicycle Man has made it to the Cannes Short Film Corner and it’s in the Cannes Catalogue, wow. I’m truly grateful to everyone who made this film possible.

On page 274, it was incorrectly stated that Taghreed Elsanhouri was born in the UK. She was born in Sudan and migrated with her family to the UK as a young child.
There are several errors in the captions of the film stills:
Figure 2 should read: Still from Polyglot (dir. Amelia Umuhire, 2015).
Figure 3 should read: Still from Maman(s) (dir. Maimouna Doucouré, 2015).
Figure 5 should read: Still from African Booty Scratcher (dir. Nikyatu Jusu, 2007).
