The festival, that kicked off in Nampula with a masterclass film workshop for local filmmakers, led by up-and-coming Mozambican cineaste Orlando Mabasso, continued with Mozambican writers Paulina Chiziane, Lucilio Manjate and Eduardo Quive doing talks and readings in the provincial library, followed by a workshop with students at the Lotus EPC primary school where some film screenings for children were also held.
The festival then took film and literature to Lichinga, the northernmost Mozambican city, for two days on November 19 and 20, says festival founder Alexander Macbeth.

“The festival then returned to its founding base, the coastal district of Mossuril, for film screenings, training events and a first-ever Kids Zone for young children,” he says. “Mossuril-based innovator ‘Mr Domingo’, who makes upcycled speakers complete with USB ports, SD cards and much more – out of recycled water containers and radio parts – gave a workshop for secondary school students and children in Mossuril. Sergio, a physics professor from Argentina, gave a course on creating basic lighting from recycled waste using a solar panel and a small battery.”
