Bigger Better Zanzibar Film Festival

The Zanzibar International Film Festival is setting up to be at its biggest and best with 490 film entries from 39 countries.

“One of the most exciting developments in this year’s selection is the substantial increase in the quantity and quality of local films, which is the greatest number of entries ever received from here,” Daniel Nyalusi, the Assistant Festival Director and Festival Manager told a Dar es Salaam.

The Festival will also serve as a premier for the films created by last years winners using USD 2000 prize money they won to produce their next film.
