Mama Afrika Film Festival (Nairobi) 7-10 November 2017
The Embassy of Spain in Kenya hosted a press conference on 3 November to launch the Mama Afrika Film Festival.
The festival, previously known as Udada Festival, aims to increase the exposure of upcoming and established women creatives: filmmakers, but also visual artists and writers, among others. This year’s theme is GENDER: Provoke, debate, evolve.
The Mama Afrika Film Festival will host screenings, exhibitions and events from 7 to 10 November, at various venues, including Multimedia University, Kenyatta University and the Kenya Institute of Mass Communications.
The opening night is Tuesday, 7 November, at PAWA254, from 5pm.
