The NBO Film Fest (Nairobi Film Festival) is back for its third year and it will take place from 6th June 2019 to 16th June 2019 at Prestige Cinemas in Nairobi. The Festival will feature films from Kenyan, African, Afro-Latin and Afro-Caribbean cinema.
The festival was co-founded by film director Mbithi Masya and producer Sheba Hirst. The aim of the NBO Film Fest is to revitalise cinema-going culture in Nairobi as a critical means of contributing to the growth of a healthy film industry in Kenya. The festival does that by screening exceptional films from around the world that are rarely presented in Nairobi’s mainstream cinema and showing the best made Kenyan films.
