Locally produced film content is in high demand.
The Kenya Film Commission in fulfillment of its mandate of promoting the local film industry is looking to acquire content from local film producers and companies for showcase on local TV Channels. The Content up for acquisition includes Feature films and Mini TV Series.
The terms and conditions for the submissions include;
Length: Feature films should be a minimum of 60 minutes while mini TV series should be between 20 and 25 minutes in length per episode. Consideration will only be given to a mini TV series of 13 episodes.
Eligibility: Producers/Production Companies submitting must be tax compliant.
Screening: All motion pictures submitted for consideration must be classified by Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB). They must comply with government regulations on taste and decency.
Content must be locally produced by a Kenyan production company and featuring Kenyan actors. It may appear in a scripted or unscripted format. You will have higher chances of being picked if your content appeals to the youth. There is no restriction to then the production was done and only one submission per title is required.
This is such a great move for our film industry so hurry and get your work seen and possibly picked up by a local channel. Entries close on 29th August.
