Nepal Africa Film Festival (NAFF) was first organized by CJMC in 2011. Each year 8 movies from various African countries and two Nepali movies are selected by our screening committee for the festival. Our underlying purpose behind this initiative are excerpted below:
NAFF seeks to provide an unbiased and integrated representation of Africa in Nepal.
Provoke questions in our audience regarding the authenticity of prevailing African stereotypes and provide an integrated understanding of African culture.
Explore "Africa through African lens", primarily to highlight incongruences in mainstream narrative of Africa.
There are 53 countries in Africa and apart from South Africa and Egypt none have their representatives here in Nepal. Therefore, the festival intends to serve as a bridge between Africa and Nepal and alleviate cultural and informational gap.
Facilitate cultural exchange by inviting participation of government bodies and African universities.
