RWANDA CINEASTE CLUB launches initiative to boost funding in Rwandan movie industry
A recently founded film club known as RWANDA CINEASTE CLUB is set to launch one of the most sensational initiatives aimed at sharing ideas on how funding in local movie industry can be increased.
On several occasions, the quality of films produced in Rwanda has been criticized something that is attributed to lack of enough resources injected into this industry.
In the brainstorming session set to take place on 5th March 2014 at Goethe Institute at 6.30pm, members of RWANDA CINEASTE CLUB will come up with new ideas for the funding of future film projects. A thorough study of the film scene made them conceive new funding strategies while in turn the audience will be asked to give spontaneous feedback as to the feasibility of their proposals.
And while speaking to kigalirat.com Aime Philbert Mbabazi, who will be one of the main speakers at the event, said, “There is no lack of ideas for great films in this country: Young Rwandan scriptwriters, filmmakers and editors are the most creative artists. Fundraising however is one of the toughest obstacles towards the implementation of their ideas.”
He was seconded by Olivier Shyaka, also among the speakers who said that it will be a platform not only mandatory for members of the scene but also for those interested in seeing the Rwandan film industry thrive.
