ZIFF is East Africa's largest film, music and arts festival, bringing new talents together from all over the world for a Zanzibar Tamasha!

Each year, some of the most captivating and cutting-edge cinema from Africa and beyond is screened in venues across the island. From world-premiers to local shorts, we've got it all, with a long history of showcasing the highest quality film from all over the world. Films are submitted based on a yearly theme - this year is'Hopes in Harmony' - and entered into various categories and competitions. The final night is an awards night, where the winning films are recognised and celebrated.

ZIFF also puts on the island's best parties. Live music, dance, DJs and performance across several venues means that carnival fever hits Zanzibar for 2 weeks! We bring musicians together from all over Africa, as well as recognised international acts.


A Zanzibar institution, ZIFF is a truly local festival, with exhibitions, workshops, and cultural tours that take you to the heart of the community. We promote local talent in film and music, showcasing new and old creative achievements. As ZIFF comes to town, so too do opportunities for recognising arts and crafts - the festival is always a hotbed of activity!
World Cup!

We are particularly excited to cooincide the Festival with the closing of the World Cup. 2010 really is The African Year, and ZIFF will be at the heart of it - watch this space for news of a special World Cup Final event...
