THE THEME

The 5th SOTAMBE Documentary Film and Arts Festival (SOTAMBE DFAF) is happening in period 18 – 22 September 2018 in Kitwe, Zambia under the theme “THESE ARE THE DAYS – Celebrating a Zambian Filmmaker”

The theme is in keeping with and celebrates the development taking place in the Zambian Film Industry. The Government approved the Film Policy in 2017 and is working on establishing film schools. The Government is in full swing implementing the digital migration process from an analogue platform in order to increase broadcasting capacity.

Both private and national media houses will demand more and quality local content which will increase opportunities for the local film production houses and the consequent increase in employment. Zambian filmmakers therefore need to be prepared to meet these opportunities.

Festival Dates: 18 – 22 September 2018
Venue: Kitwe Little Theatre
