about_rwanda_film_festival

The Rwanda Film Festival, also known as Hillywood, has not only established itself as the country’s most important cultural event, but also as one of Africa’s most prestigious festivals. For seven days, film lovers, filmmakers, industry professionals and media will watch the best in new cinema from established masters and new local and international talents. The Hillywood tradition continues this year with the festival’s tenth edition.

Our principal objective is to promote and encourage awareness, appreciation and understanding of the art of cinema in Rwanda. Our mandate is to present the most outstanding films produced in every part of the world.

With the ongoing development of filmmaking in Rwanda, we believe the time is right for such a festival that serves as a key platform for the promotion of Rwandan-produced cinema and also enables our local professionals to interact with internationally established filmmakers.
