14th Lusophone Film Fest POSTER tosh
The 14th edition of the Lusophone Film Fest Nairobi will be on the 9-Jan at the Goethe-Institut Nairobi. This session will mark two years of the Film Fest with a selection of the best shorts we’ve had so far.

We will also have a talk with Bernardo Nascimento (director of North Atlantic) and Tosh Gitonga (director of Nairobi Half Life) for a lively discussion after the session! This edition will feature a number of shorts, lasting for about 2 hours:

– A Tropical Sunday (Mozambique)
– 3×3 (Portugal)
– Animalz (Portugal)
– Relic (Brazil)
– The Suspect (Portugal)
– The Ball (Mozambique)
– Isle of Flowers (Brazil)
– Alambamento (Angola)
– Rafa (Portugal)
– North Atlantic (Portugal)

Recognised with international awards at film festivals around the globe, the cinema from the Portuguese-speaking world is still mostly unknown to the general public. This 240 million people linguistic community is a thriving one, promoting over 80 film festivals and cinema awards every year, with movies mostly consumed in the respective countries.

The Lusophone Film Fest is a showcase of the diversity of film production in the eight Portuguese-speaking countries spread across 4 continents. The festival presents multiple works (documentaries, animations, shorts and feature films), in sessions of several films from the different countries.

The event is free of charge. More info in
