Screening: Africa Metropolis Films in Nairobi! Jul. 18-20 2014 @ Goethe Institut, the Nest & Pawa 254 Hub Respectively

Africa Metropolis

African Metropolis Films Comes To Nairobi!
African Metropolis, a compilation of six short films from six African cities, will be screened for the first time in Nairobi.

The films from Abidjan, Cairo, Dakar, Johannesburg, Lagos and Nairobi tell urban tales about life in African metropolises. Over 50 percent of the continent’s total population now lives in cities, and vital urban cultures are forming and transforming – fast, and with growing complexity. In African cinema, the shift is towards urban stories, with less focus on the traditional, rural Africa that dominated in the past.

The event will be held in different venues including Goethe Institut, The Nest and Pawa254.

The Pawa254’s rooftop will take place on Sunday, 20th of July, completing the whole event with supporting happenings like live graffiti, spoken word performances, music performances and a visual urban photography exhibition.

Entrance: Free

Event: Open Show Nairobi January Edition, Jan. 17 2014 @ the NEST

Open Show
Date: Friday, January 17 2014
Venue: The Nest
Time: 7 pm

About
Open Show is a global, volunteer-run platform for visual storytelling through photography, film and multimedia. Our monthly events showcase 5 presenters each with 10-15 minutes to show 20 images or 3-8 mins of video or multimedia. They can use the time to talk about their presentation as much or as little as they want within the time frame. Our mission at Open Show is to use the visual medium of storytelling to create conversation rather than a lecture-style presentation, and so the audience will be able to connect directly with the presenter by asking questions, and providing comments and feedback.

NB: Open Show Nairobi are always looking for more presenters, so if you are interested in presenting 20 of your photos or 3-8mins of video, we highly encourage one and all. Please submit here: http://openshow.org/submissions/
Choose photos that tell a story and be ready to discuss with the audience.

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.

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
