Kenya holidays to take in film festival?

The Kenya International Film Festival may appeal to those making their way through the African country.

Individuals on Kenya holidays will have the chance to see a collection of movies that are connected through the theme of leadership.

Over 360 pictures from 55 countries will be showcased at the event, which runs from October 21st-30th.

Films will be screened in Nairobi, Nakuru, Kisumu, Mombasa and Eldoret, while a number of special nights are being put on to celebrate culture.

The categories for those flicks that are participating in competitions are; Student, Short, Long Feature, Experimental, Animation and Documentaries.

A number of classics are also going to be screened, as well as a special feature on Africa Diaspora movies.

In 2010, five of the ten prizes were given to Kenya films.

Festival director Charles Asiba noted it is a challenging time for Africa and so this will be an opportunity for directors to express themselves.
