Objectifs clefs de la mesure:

The Kenya Film Commission  has been implementing an award progrmme dedicated to promoting culture, stories, creativity and skills within the East African region. The Kalasha International Film & TV Festival & Market brings under one roof 3 main activities: The Kalasha Eastern Africa Film & TV Trade Show, The Kalasha International Film Festival and The Kalasha Film & TV Awards. The progrmme  is a creative hub that brings together players from the Eastern Africa Film & TV industry in one place and at the same time; offering a platform for all the players and the festival goers from the Film & TV industry to gather, discuss, exchange, collaborate, share stories and develop new business opportunities. The main objective of the programme is to showcase Kenya as a major regional hub for film and TV production, post-production and distribution across all platforms and genres while reinforcing the uniqueness of Kenya as a shooting location. It is catalyst in creating a vibrant film & TV industry which contributes in shaping Kenya’s image at the international level, enhance tourism, provide employment and foster local productions and skills. The Commission has carried out an independent film industry gap analysis baseline survey to determine the skills gap within Kenya’s film industry with proposed recommendations on how to enhance production and uptake of local content aired by broadcasters and Cinema theatres. Arising out of these recommendations was the proposal for support of capacity building initiatives for local content producers geared towards enhancing production, post production, marketing and regulatory skills necessary for the attainment of quality and affordable local content. In 2014, the film commission negotiated for a film incentive and stimulus package for the film industry which was granted in 2015. The incentives are in favor of the local film maker and partially make the film industry attractive for foreign film makers.
