“The Kigali venues will include many restaurants, hotels and cinemas. And the provisional upcountry venues for Hillywood are Musanze, Rubavu and Huye,” noted Murenzi.

The festival, which will be running under the theme “Our Mothers, Our Heroes”, will include films of all categories; including documentaries, fiction, animation and experimental both short and feature length movies.

So far the ninth annual film festival has received 100 film submissions and participating countries in this year’s festival include Burkina Faso, Egypt, England and United States.
