#Urusaro8 #cinefemmesrda
October 4-13, 2023 (Kigali, Rwanda)
8ème édition / 8th Edition. THEME "Cinema: Tool for Development".

The concepts
The word "URUSARO" is a Kinyarwanda word and refers to "pearl" in English. It's neither any pearl (ISARO) nor a small pearl (AGASARO), but a strong, beautiful and splendid one, that bears positivity and attraction. A "Festival" supposes a remarkable demonstration, a cultural exhibition, an organized series of events, and a periodic celebration in honor/memory of a culture by the community. The two words highlight it all. We celebrate, on a periodic basis, the place and contribution of a woman in cinema for the benefit of the society and gender equality.

Founder of the Festival: Jacqueline MUREKEYISONI
Program Manager for Rwanda Arts Initiative: Michel Patrick MIVUMBI
The festival Director of the Urusaro International Women Film Festival: Floriane KANEZA
