This festival is not currently open for submissions.

Festival start: 23 November 2017      Festival end: 26 November 2017

The festival is organized by the Udada Festival Trust (UFT) and seeks to develop a local and regional audience by showcasing films that have been done by women for women and are not necessarily distributed in local cinemas or television. Special attention will be given to African films made by women and films pertaining to African women.

The mandate of the UDADA Film Festival is to:

Facilitate interaction between women filmmakers; and women filmmakers and their audiences;
Support and encourage women involved in film production;
Increase the exposure of new productions written and/or directed by women;
Showcase women productions to the Kenyan and International film industry for future ventures;
Provide opportunities for professional development;
Provide a marketplace for industry. In essence, a reverse trade mission providing local filmmakers and producers access to the national and international film industry;
Develop and offer youth programs to develop the next generation of filmmakers.

CALL FOR ENTRIES

The Third edition of UDADA (SISTERHOOD) Film Festival will be held from the 16th – 21st October 2016. The Udada Women’s Film Festival is the first in the region and the second in the continent to feature Women’s fiction and documentary film productions.

Women filmmakers, especially in Africa, have been usually relegated to second place. As a festival we believe that through this initiative we will be able to provide a platform for established and emerging female talent in this industry to exhibit their work, discuss, exchange and network with each other, the public and other stakeholders.

This year’s theme is: ‘The African Woman, Reflections and Perceptions’.

We shall showcase films made by African women that reflect African women filmmakers from all over the world.

The Festival will screen short films, feature films, documentaries and experimental films.
