Africa in Motion was initiated and is organised and managed by Stop and Stir Arts Ltd, a small Edinburgh-based not-for-profit company. The company grew out of its founders' passion for and interest in African film and a strong desire to make marginalised and under-represented art more widely available to Scottish audiences.
