FilmAid's Film Festival is a unique opportunity for audiences to experience the compelling stories from refugee, and non-refugee filmmakers. It also presents an opportunity for filmmakers to screen their films for the communities living in Dadaab and Kakuma Refugee Camps, as well as in multiple locations in Nairobi. The FilmAid Film Festival will take place from September 3 - 21, 2018.
About our Film Festival
Held annually in Kenya, FilmAid’s Film Festival strives to fulfill FilmAid’s vision of informing, inspiring and empowering refugees and other marginalized populations throughout the world. Through FilmAid’s extensive programming in Nairobi, Kakuma and Dadaab, each year, FilmAid is able to train, support and empower more than 50 refugee youth to tell their own stories through the power of film. In addition, the Film Festival provides independent filmmakers worldwide the opportunity to share stories with refugees in the Kenyan camps, allowing for shared artistic communication.
