About us

Rwanda Film Festival also known as Hillywood has established itself as the country’s most important cultural event, but also one of Africa’s most prestigious festivals. For 7 days, film lovers, filmmakers, industry professionals and media will watch the best in new cinema from established masters and new local and international talents.

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 current ongoing development of film-making 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, but also enables our local professionals to exchange with internationally established filmmakers.
