East Africa Outreach
“Connecting Creative Communities Around the Globe Through the Art and Science of Film”
The Academy's International Outreach program brings delegations of visiting film artists to countries with developing film industries, as well as creating opportunities for creative conversations between emerging and established filmmakers from many nations.
East Africa as a region is experiencing an upswing in the number and quality of films being produced there. We visited two countries in the region, Kenya and Rwanda, though our activities involved interactions with a number of professional and aspiring filmmakers from other countries of the region, including Sudan, Ethiopia, Tanzania and Uganda.
