Welcome to
Mashariki African Film Festival

Mashariki African Film Festival is a non- Government Organization based in Rwanda,
aiming at establishing cinema as a language and culture. It organizes a cultural
annual event with the same name “Mashariki African Film Festival.” It also aims
at bringing African cinema to the African audience. Stories from Maghreb to Cap town,
from West to the East of Africa, we cherish our stories.

Film Screening, workshops and Masterclass delivered by our
international and local Filmmakers are bound in Mashariki African Film Festival Program.
We believe through Audiovisual content, African cultures and talents can be shared.

Let our African contents uniquely flourish.
