About
Co-founded by film director Mbithi Masya and producer Sheba Hirst, The NBO Film Fest wants to revitalise cinema-going culture in Nairobi as a critical means of contributing to the growth of a healthy film industry in Kenya. The festival began to do that in the last three years by presenting exceptional films from around the world that are rarely presented in Nairobi’s mainstream cinema and showing the best made Kenyan films in a lively festival format.

Lusala, a film directed by Mugambi Nthiga, produced by One Fine Day Films and Ginger Ink Films will make its world premiere at the festival. This will be continuing a tradition that started in the 2017 premiere of Kati Kati by Mbithi Masya and was followed by the 2018 premiere Supa Modo by Likarion Wainaina.

    I was unfortunate that I missed the Nairobi Film Festival having learnt about it during the Kalasha International Film and TV market.
