The collection is available internationally at netflix.com/madeinafrica or can also be found on Netflix by merely searching ‘Africa Month’ or ‘Africa Day’ or ‘Made in Africa’ and will make it much easier for Netflix subscribers who love African stories to find something exciting to watch.

The collection comprises of over 100 titles - including older licensed movies and series as well as Netflix Originals such as Queen Sono, which debuted on Netflix earlier this year, and Blood & Water, which will roll out this month.

Also included in the collection are critically-acclaimed blockbusters and series like Jerusalema; Lionheart; King of Boys; Mokalik; Oscar-award winning movie Tsotsi; The Wedding Party; Castle and Castle; Tjovitjo; The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind; Potato Potahto; Azali and many more.

Subscribers will also see major international series and films that were wholly or predominantly filmed in Africa, such as Holiday in the Wild (filmed in South Africa and Zambia); The Red Sea Diving Resort (filmed in Namibia and South Africa); Blood Diamond (filmed in Morocco, Sierra Leone and South Africa).

Ben Amadasun, the Africa Director of Licensing and Co-productions at Netflix, said that this Africa Month, Netflix is excited to celebrate African storytellers and stories. He added that the video streaming giant hoped that by making all of these ‘Made in Africa’ titles readily available it would help ensure that they are watched around the world.
