Mufakose Residents Throng Outreach Screening

  October 4, 2016

Mufakose residents yesterday thronged for ZIFF2016 Outreach Programme which saw the screening of The Collector at Mufakose Film Society.

The outreach screening done in partnership with Japanese Embassy drew attention of young people and adults.

Zimbabwe International Film Festival (ZIFF) director Elton Mjanana in his opening speech reiterated that outreach screenings are aimed at reaching the marginalized communities hence the festival should not be seen as elitist.

“The Festival should not be on this side of Samora only therefore we reach the masses and nurture young talents with our outreach programs”, he said.

Residents of Harare’s location enjoyed watching The Collector, a Short Film Proj­ect (SFP) production which features Zimbabwe’s first visually impaired actress Edith Masango and a Japanese documentary.

The Collector which premiered at ZIFF2015 talks about making choices in life. However, mak­ing a right choice seems to be a dilemma because even those choices presumed to be good also have negative implica­tions.

Outreach to Educate (o2e) offers free filmmaking workshops, screenings and events to ensure maximum reach to societies that are underserved by cinema access and infrastructure.

Meanwhile, there has been a two day workshop on career impact, personal development training hosted by Nico Abote.
