Online African Film Festival — Quick start

Hello !

Cinewax introduces the first Online African Film Festival. It has started since 15 november ! You will have access to the movies until the 15th of december included.

We are very happy of your support and energy.

We have had some technical issues with the platform, and we decided to do this quick guide to help you start the experience.

We are a little charity, and we put all our efforts and passion into this festival. We are doing our best to provide a functional platform with beautiful african films.
