Call For Short Films Submissions For Mathare Youth Film Festival

September 28, 2012 at 3:22 pm 1 comment

The Mathare Youth Film Festival is the first of its kind in Kenya. MYFF is a youth film competition, but apart from the daily screenings, MYFF will also be a  five day workshop, where youth from the Nairobi slums will be taught the essentials of filmmaking.

A key idea in MYFF is to screen films about slum/underdeveloped areas around the globe – from Indian slum suburbs and Mongolian ger camps to Brazilian Favelas and South African townships. The diversity and similarities of the films will shed some light on what life is like being young and living in a slum or underdeveloped area in 2012. The vision is to paint a more updated and less bleak picture of the lives of young people coping, enjoying and living in the slums of the world. For more information: http://myff.atspace.tv/

This is a call for submissions of films shot around or in a slum across the world. Feel free to get in touch with Andreas Juul Johansen: andreasjuuljohansen [at] @gmail.com for more information.
