The African Student Film Festival in Nigeria is an initiative borne out of deep thoughts for the future of the beautiful continent of Africa, in order to promote and protect her cultural values.
African Student Film Festival Initiative is an annual Pan-African festival targeted at discovering, encouraging and rewarding African young film makers and helping them to get funds and grants. With six days intensive training and workshop on various film making techniques, participants will learn from participants what will make them masters of their own.
African Student Film Festival Initiative after the 2015 Edition decided to be a Traveling Pan-African Student Film Festival. The reason why we decided on this is, since ASFFi is a student event, it should be held in Higher Institutions to get more students participation and involvement. University of Lagos Creative Arts Department would be hosting the 2017 ASFFi event.
Country in Focus
The country in focus for the year 2017 is South Africa, because of its rich Culture and Diversity. We are particularly focusing on BIG FISH School of Digital Filmmaking, this is because of their out standing documentary films which has continuously been winning the best Documentary Film since the inspection of ASFFi.
We are also taking a look at Kwazulu-Natal Film Commission South Africa, as they are encouraging Co-productions and also encouraging not only established filmmakers, but also emerging talents to come to Kwazulu to make their films. They have some kind of support and grants for this.
