One of the most powerful elements of the film festival is the opportunity for film industry professionals from all over the world to come together to celebrate, learn, network and share.
We would like to bring 10 queer first-time filmmakers from East Africa to experience this at QueerKIFF 2017. The Queer Filmmakers lab project aims to provide filmmaking skills to LGBTIQ people and empower them to tell their stories through their own words and images.
The 10 selected trainees will interact with established industry professionals who will provide support for those who will shape the future of queer storytelling. The short films made by the trainees will premiere at the second edition of QueerKIFF and at our partner film festivals around the world.
