Since its premiere in 2017, the main focus of the festival has been to promote short films as an art form in Sub-Saharan Africa. The festival will showcase a wide variety of genres and styles that the medium has to offer in a bid to demonstrate short films’ viability as a storytelling tool in the region.

This year’s edition will boast a rich catalogue of films from all over the African continent; with notable award-winners like: ‘Kyenvu’ by Kemiyondo Coutinho and ‘Maraya Ni’ by Patricia Olwoch from Uganda; and ‘Aya’ by Moufida Fedhila from Tunisia, which collected several awards for Best Short in 2018.

There will also be a showcase of European films mainly from Germany, the United Kingdom and Sweden. The films will tackle a variety of issues like immigration, climate change, and living in the diaspora among others.

The festival will also be conducting a free three-day workshop for emerging African filmmakers. The workshop will be facilitated by renown film producer and head of the film department of London Film School: Femi Kolade. The workshop will offer the participants access to advanced film-making tools and techniques, while serving as a hub within which they can interface and collaborate with one another.

The festival is organised by Goethe-Zentrum Kampala in partnership with Maisha Film Lab.
