About

With 30 films stretched over 10 Days, the 2021 edition will take a closer look at a broad variety of socio-cultural topics: everyday lives, working conditions, experiences of migration, consequences of economic growth and questions of diverse cultural identities. Next to feature documentaries and fictions from established filmmakers, the students’ platform will present a careful selection of debut films from all over the globe that are deeply personal, sensitive and committed to a cause. Some of the featured Kenyan films include: The LetterCoachez, If Objects Could Speak and Tales of the Accidental City

For the first time, this year’s edition allows us to watch online and discuss films together from various corners of the world, which has resulted in the addition of an exciting new facet to the festival: #FIFOJUNCTIONS! Partnering with DAP (Documentary Association Pakistan) and our friends from DocuBox in Nairobi, Kenya, we will use this opportunity to screen films simultaneously in these locations and discuss them from multiple perspectives.  

In addition to this collaboration with our partners in Kenya and Pakistan, other highlights from our program include: a panel on colonial heritage in Kenya and Germany, a workshop on Chinese weavings, a historic radio piece on the banlieues of Paris and a participative performance on African orature.  

Throughout the festival – from May 6 to May 16 – all films will be available to screen from home and will be free to view in Kenya. As the films will be live streamed from our cinema to your living rooms, they can be watched simultaneously worldwide. Following the live stream, there is also the opportunity for all viewers to participate in live, post-screening film discussions via zoom.
