1st Edition
Kenya joined the region in 2018 and hosted a successful first festival through the Discovery Centre in Nairobi. For five days groups from schools and even a childrens’ home attended screenings and did activities at the Discovery Centre premises. A total of about 100 audience members attended. The festival received attention from the Y254TV channel, a subsidiary of the Kenya Broadcasting Corporation that produces educational youth content for TV shows, as well as a visiting government official who encouraged the centre to expand the festival outside of the city’s borders. After each screening, the centre’s facilitators discussed the film’s themes with the audience to make sure the children understood what they had just watched. They then proceeded to an activity and these included curdling milk, building a solar system model and making your own fidget spinner.
