The Spur Film Festival has announced that it will be hosting a special screening of the new film “Giants of Africa” at sunset on Thursday May 4, 2017 at the Winnipeg Art Gallery in downtown Winnipeg. The screening is free to attend with donations being accepted on site to the Aboriginal Youth Opportunities organization.
The Spur Festival hosts a free screening of the new film, Giants of Africa, seeking to answer the question: can sport really change the world?
About The Film: Inspired by the NBA’s “Basketball Without Borders” program, Giants of Africa exists to create those same opportunities for not only African youth, but also for coaches and mentors who go back to their own homeland to influence future generations. What began simply as a basketball camp in one African country has now spread across four nations: Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya and Rwanda. At its core, this film explores basketball as a tool to create lasting change and empower others to dream big.
