Acting for Integration: Film Training for Children and Young People

As part of the EAC’s ambition to use film as a tool for promoting regional integration, the EAC in cooperation with the East African Film Network (EAFN) and supported by German Development Cooperation through GIZ, embarked on a 4-day training course for 15 East African youths, 3 from each of the 5 EAC member states. The kids learned about basic cinematography skills such as acting, producing and editing, operating a camera, lighting, sound and scripting. The training took place during the Lola Kenya Screen Film Festival, a festival specialising on films for children and youth.
