The 28th edition of the European Film Festival will expand in its outreach to have cinemas accessible to most; partner with community cultural organizations to showcase relevant programming; and collaborate with more Kenyan partners to build long term relationships in the cultural sector.

In addition to film screenings with European, African, and Kenyan films, the European Film Festival will include special engagements with invited European and Kenyan industry professionals, both emerging and established, to share experiences through master classes. Together with our partners from European countries and Kenyan organisations, such as ANGA IMAX Cinemas, Black Rhino VR, White Rhino Films, Huipalas Cultural Centre, German School Nairobi, Slum Film Festival, Goethe-Institut Nairobi, Lake International Panafrican Film Festival, Alliance Française, Machawood, La Cinémathèque Afrique and Mookh.

European Union Ambassador to Kenya, HE Stefano A. Dejak, highlights:

'Cultural relations are a cornerstone of our engagement here in Kenya, within the people to people dimension of our partnership. In its 28th Edition, the European Film Festival is an important event in Nairobi's cultural calendar to truly look forward to. This year’s programme will again be richer and ever more interesting, thanks to the joint work of the European Union Delegation to Kenya, European Union Member State, other participating European countries and our Kenyan partner organisations.'
