Cameroon Film Festival working towards ameliorating the Cameroon Film Industry!

The award night which took place on April 29th 2017 under the patronage of the Minister of Arts and Culture Mr. Narcisse Mouelle Kombi was a night filed with grandeur hosted by Nene Jimla .

The Cameroon International Film Festival is an initiative of a Cameroonian Filmmaker, Agbor Gilbert with the aim of promoting Cameroonian Film industry through workshops with international filmmakers, creating partnerships and awarding excellence in Cameroon and International film. CAMIFF is a 6- days event that takes place in Buea at the foot of beautiful Mt Cameroon. This event entails entertaining activities rich and diverse in culture. Unfortunately, we could only participate during the last 2 days and I must say it was an amazing experience. Meeting, dialoguing and networking with so many talented individuals is something we would wanna do over and over again.
