The Ngalabi Short Film Festival which is now in its 3rd edition returns this Friday. It will take place from 1st – 3rd February at the Goethe-Zentrum rooftop terrace on Bukoto Street in Kamwokya.

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.
