Nepal Africa Film Festival - 2017 Sep 18 - Sep 20 · Russian Center of Science & Culture (Nepal)· Kathmandu


Nepal Africa Film Festival (NAFF) was first organized by CJMC in 2011. Each year 8 movies from various African countries and two Nepali movies are selected by our screening committee for the festival. Our underlying purpose behind this initiative are excerpted below:

  • NAFF seeks to provide an unbiased and integrated representation of Africa in Nepal.

  • Provoke questions in our audience regarding the authenticity of prevailing African stereotypes and provide an integrated understanding of African culture.

  • Explore "Africa through African lens", primarily to highlight incongruences in mainstream narrative of Africa.

  • There are 53 countries  in Africa and apart from South Africa and Egypt none have their representatives here in Nepal. Therefore, the festival intends to serve as a bridge between Africa and Nepal and alleviate cultural and informational gap.

  • Facilitate cultural exchange by inviting participation of government bodies and African universities.
