Last week, Kenya held the inaugural International Film Convention bringing together stakeholders in the film and television industry to chart steps needed to grow and develop the sector.
Organised by the the Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) in conjunction with the French Embassy, the European Union (Kenya delegation) and UNESCO, the event addressed topical industry concerns such as licensing and regulation, film training and curriculum, local content production and content distribution.
The government pledged it support, with a film policy expected once a new cabinet has been formed, following the presidential re-election that was held last month.
Themed “taking the AV and film industry to the next level”, this years event was attended by over 300 participants from 10 different countries. The convention is expected to be an annual event promoting knowledge sharing, innovation and collaboration within an upcoming film industry that is seen a having a lot of potential.
