The 3rd edition of NBO Film Fest (Nairobi Film Festival) is currently underway. The showcase commenced at Prestige Plaza on the 6th of June and will run till the 16th.
The NBO Film Fest wants to revitalize cinema-going culture in Nairobi as a critical means of contributing to the growth of a healthy film industry in Kenya. Over the last 2 years, the audience has multiplied 5 times indicating that there is a well-established appetite for films that go well beyond what mainstream distribution currently has to offer.
This year, the festival features films from Kenyan, African, Afro-Latin and Afro-Caribbean cinema. Lusala, a film directed by Mugambi Nthiga, produced by One Fine Day Films and Ginger Ink Films made its world premiere at the festival. This is to continue a tradition that started in the 2017 premiere of Kati Kati by Mbithi Masya and was followed by the 2018 premiere Supa Modo by Likarion Wainaina
