    Hey im compiling Birthday/ Christmas lists, and am looking for great african films, so please post yours.
    I Have:

    Any of those sort of films i would love, so please post yours as i will see if i can get them

    And if anyone else is looking for great african films then my little list could be a good starter.

    PS: Not really interested in older films (African queen, Out of Africa etc)

    Also looking for great foreign films.

    I have - Night Watch and Day Watch (Which are amazing)
    All of del toros, Cronos, Devils backbone, pans labrynth etc

    The gods must be crazy

    What qualifies as an "african film" to you?

    i.e a film that was made in africa, a cast of mainly africans etc

    To clarify i mean films set in africa/made in africa/consisting mainly of an african cast (Shooting dogs, hotel rwanda)

    I do not mean Nollywood (Nigerias version of hollywood)

    But thanks for suggestions;

    Haven't seen malcom x or the gods must be crazy, or ice in alex, so may have a look at them.

    Love zulu and black hawk down
