Twenty-three film entries from 11 African countries have been selected to participate in the inaugural edition of the PIFF_ AFRICA 2021 film festival which will run virtually from May 13 to 23.

The PIFF_AFRICA film festival is a partnership between the National Arts Council of Zimbabwe (NACZ) and Piton International Film Festival ( PIFF).

NACZ arts manager and program co-ordinator for Midlands Province, Farai Kapfuvira said there was an overwhelming response from the continent to take part in the initiative to promote filmmakers who are based in Africa.

“At the close of submissions on the 17th of April, we had received 23 films, from 11 countries which include South Africa Morocco, Uganda, Cameroon and 2 films from Zimbabwe were submitted,” said Kapfuvira.

Kapfuvira said various themes and storylines were used in making the submitted films.

“The issues tackled in the films are wide and they include gender based violence and sexuality which are prevalent in many countries even outside the African continent,” she said.

President and founder of the PIFF ED ‘Umoja’ Herman said he was impressed by the standards of submitted works.

“From music videos to full projects, PIFF-AFRICA is proud to see the level of work that has come to us and we will use our global platform to assist the filmakers in getting their brand to more locations,” he said.

“Because we are based on the collaborative spirit we will be working with the filmmakers who are interested in monetizing work after the festival.”

The PIFF_AFRICA 2021 is an annual initiative that focuses on celebrating film production and seeks to work together with the film producers who are in Africa.
