What is ZIFF
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 ‘Season of Visions' - 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.
