Dream to Screen: 48 Hour Film Project Nairobi, Nov. 29 – Dec. 1 2013 @ Various Venues in Nairobi

48HFP_Competition Poster
The 48 Hour Film Project is a wild and sleepless weekend in which teams of filmmakers and aspiring filmmakers have a blast making a movie. All writing, shooting, editing and scoring must be completed in just 48 hours.

In 2013 the 48HFP will visit more than 120 cities where more than 60,000 people will make short films. The Project has truly spread to the four corners of the globe as filmmakers from Asia, Australia, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and the Americas will compete to see who can make the best short film in a weekend.

On Friday the 29th of November, participating teams will gather at The Michael Joseph Center (HQ2 Waiyaki Way, Westlands) where they will be given a genre, a character, a prop, and a line of dialogue they MUST work into their film. Films submitted even 1-minute late on 1st December 2013 will be disqualified.

Check out a video created by 150 filmmakers from 18 cities on 6 continents describing how the 48 Hour Film Project works. See video here

All films made during the 48Hour Film Project will premier on the big screen to the open public.

Film Premiere: Something Necessary, Jan. 24 2013 @ Century Cinemax – the Junction Date: January 24, 2013

something necessary
Venue: Century Cinemax – The Junction
Tickets: Kshs 450 [limited tickets]
Time: 18:45

For more information: Facebook event page

Something Necessary is an intimate moment in the life on Anna, who is struggling to rebuild her life after the 2007 civil unrest of the Elections that claimed the life of her husband. Her sons’ health and the reality of been left in her home on an isolated farm in the Kenyan countryside in shattered pieces and ruins.

Ann, once a nurse, with a solid career, united one big happy loving family, she now has nothing to hold on to but her resolutions to rebuild her life. Joseph, a troubled young man and also a gang member, he participated in the 2007 violence that was countrywide is attracted and further drawn to Anne and her farm.

Astoundingly this is only seemingly in search of REDEMPTION.

Joseph and Anne need something that only the other can give to allow them to shed the painful memories of their past and move on. Both need each other – but will either of them find it?
WILL FATE ALLOW EACH NEED THE OTHER??

Based on true life in KENYA
