NBO Film Festival scheduled for November

The NBO Film Festival will feature both in-person and online events. 

The Nairobi Film Festival, stylised as NBO Film Fest is scheduled to take place from November 3rd to November 14th. This year’s festival will be its 4th edition and unlike in previous years, will take on a hybrid format with both in-person and online events. This comes after the event took a hiatus in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The event will host local festival-goers, filmmakers, actors, media and industry professionals to celebrate cinema over the course of 10 days. Engaging innovative technologies and creative spaces, the 2021 edition will bring local, regional and international communities together to discover Kenya’s best films.

“Kenya has a vibrant and imaginative creative culture, and we are extremely honoured and proud to be sharing this rich culture with audiences after a difficult year,” said Festival Director Sheba Hirst. “In a time when change continues, we hope that the Festival will inspire hope and healing through art.”

This year’s programme of films will include The Letter directed by Maia Lekow and Chris King; The Nest Collective’s new time-hopping feature film, The More Things Change directed by Akati Khasiani & George ‘Mars’ Aloo; and Philippe Lacôte’s surreal epic, Night of Kings.

The Festival is supported by the Goethe Institut and The French Embassy in Nairobi.
