Where

The Opera Village in Burkina Faso is an ideal venue due to its infrastructure that includes training rooms, guest rooms, a recording studio, an open-air cinema and small studios.

Why

Even though cinema is a powerful medium in West Africa, there are hardly any children’s movies of African provenance. Therefore we chose KIFIFE’S focus on children’s cinema.
