The eighteenth edition of the Lusophone Film Fest Nairobi will see us partnering with the Arte Institute to showcase this year’s selection of the New York Portuguese Film Festival. The session will be on the 24-September as of 5pm at the Goethe-Institut Nairobi and we will screen 10 shorts:

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 mission of the NY Portuguese Short Film Festival is to bring Portuguese culture to the big screen and showcase films with a unique Portuguese perspective. The NYPSFF offers a contemporary Portugal full of ideas and spirit while bridging audiences with different cultural background.

The event is free of charge. More info in https://www.facebook.com/Lusophonefilmfest and https://www.facebook.com/ArteInstitute
