Lola Kenya Screen film forum (LKSff), Nairobi’s premier critical movie platform, convenes, for the 93rd time, on April 25, 2016 at 5:45 PM.
JUST A SIP, a romantic drama directed by Brian Prince Ochieng and starring Sharon Wanjiku, Felix Kiveu and Ken Njiru, shall be shown and discussed.
The initiative of ComMattersKenya and ArtMatters.Info in collaboration with Goethe-Institut, LKSff deals with all sorts of short moving images: Public Service Announcements (PSAs), Commercials, Animations, Experimentals, Avant-Garde, Documentaries, Music Videos, and Fictions.
The crew and cast of the film in focus usually attend the meeting and field questions from players in the movie sector.
The aims of LKSff are to build capacity in the movie sector of Kenya and eastern Africa; and to help turn movie-making in the region into a sustainable industry.
A training ground for Moviemakers; Event Programmers and Presenters; Public Speakers and Discussion Moderators; Journalists and Critics; Promoters and Marketers; and Resource-Mobilisers, LKSff is often one of the first–and perhaps the only–place where new films can be seen and young talent spotted.
LKSff is a networking platform for practitioners who are committed to the development of the 7th Art–Movies–into an industry in eastern Africa. Each monthly meeting shows and critiques motion pictures, encourages filmmakers and explores ways of integrating movie-production with other socio-cultural and economic sectors in order to come up with a veritable creative industry.
LKSff is one of the five projects of the Lola Kenya Screen (LKS) arts and media fesival, skills-development programme and marketing platform for children and youth in eastern Africa.
LKSff, that has been running every month since 2005, is so far the most consistent and longest running movie platform on the Nairobi arts and entertainment calendar.
