Le projet AfroCiné est un Wikiprojet international et multiforme qui vise à encourager les contributions relatives au domaines historiques et contemporains du cinéma, du théâtre et autres secteurs artistiques de plusieurs pays d’Afrique, des caraïbes et de leurs diasporas au sein des projets Wikimédia.


« Pour créer un pont là où existe actuellement un immense fossé et combattre le biais systémique concernant le continent africain, en incluant de réelles histoires et points de vues africains au sein des canaux de diffusion majoritaires. Pour parvenir à cette fin, le projet s’appuiera sur des articles, des citations, des images, des vidéos et des données relatives aux thématiques historiques et contemporaines du cinéma, du théâtre et des arts africains, en les rendant accessibles aussi bien en ligne que hors connexion, et dans différentes langues. »


The Entertainment Industry in Africa is huge; the Nigerian cinema is currently ranked as the third largest film industry in the world, in terms of revenue and production output. Other major film industries in Africa include the cinemas of: Ghana, South Africa, Kenya, and Egypt. All of these very active film industries are poorly represented on Wikipedia, as the available information about them is very scanty and difficult to access. The AfroCine Project aims to fix this problem.

Focus will include variety of interests, such as: Contemporary cinema articles, Cinema history articles, biographies of relevant personalities (especially women), film articles, film archives, archives of relevant publications about African films and filmmaking, images of relevant subjects and personalities, etc. This will be achieved through varying methods, such as GLAMs; editing workshops, writing and upload contests, partnerships with relevant organizations and Government ministries, activating Wikipedians-In-Residence (WIR) in libraries of film schools and institutions, and so on, using the help of existing communities/affiliates in Africa and beyond. This project is designed to use cinema to help bridge the content gap on Wikipedia and other Wikimedia and Open projects, as well as to improve on the awareness of these projects and the overall movement in African countries.
