Festival start: 22 November 2020      Festival end: 29 November 2020

IAFF is Focused on appreciating the efforts of Filmmakers and good films by rewarding them with Funds to make more and better films.
These are the four cardinal points of our Festival;
i. Basic and Advanced DSLR Film-making for a Selected participants; this will be in conjunction with Canon.
ii. For every winner in each of the categories, there's a cash reward attached to the trophies, this is to enable filmmakers make more compelling films.
iii. Our third goal is our corporate social responsibility. In this we, are reaching out to the less privileged, orphanage homes and people with disability to support them with materials and finances.
iv. We are also closing the gap between African makers and the rest of the world. In this we will ensure good films from Africa reach-out to the entire globe.

All filmmakers who submitted their films stand a chance of winning many of our numerous gifts items. IAFF gives selected films a customized laurel and certificate of participation. Category winners are given trophies.

As a filmmaker we know a lot's of money have gone into the making process we have therefore decided that every category winner will have a cash reward.
