The Kilimanjaro Film Institute (KFI) is an organization that works to empower and educate youth from challenging backgrounds from Arusha and surrounding communities in the audio-visual production and related fields. We partner with local Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) who work with youth in selecting our students.
Their vision is to have the students create and develop their own way of making films thereby giving them an opportunity to express themselves as well as starting a career in the film industry.
Main Topic of the day: Spotting Opportunities and attracting opportunities on your side.
|Contribution by 3rd year students at KFI|
- Building a community around you and your work.
- Documenting your digital footprints ( portfolios and show reels)
- Time management skills.
- Searching Skills.
- The golden rule: The read requirements carefully before you apply.
Here is a parting quote which I really like after all the experience;
“It's amazing how much you can accomplish when it doesn't matter who gets the credit” - Harry S Truman
