  • FESC-Kianda gathers CPLP films
Luanda - The International Short Film Festival of Kianda (Fesc-Kianda) brings together from the 21st to the 26th of this month, at the Brasil-Angola Cultural Centre, in Luanda, 24 films by creators from the Community of Portuguese Speaking Countries (CPLP).

According to the director of the festival, Vánio de Almeida, the project aims to encourage national production, promotion of films, creation of mechanisms for the distribution and exchange of experiences among the creators of CPLP.

 

"Since cinema is a collective art that brings together the most varied professions, it would be an asset for the government to bet on this sector that generates several jobs and contributes to the diversification of the national economy", stressed the official.

 

In this second edition, the Angolan filmmaker Maria João Ganga, author and director of the film "Na Cidade Vazia" will be honoured.

 

Fesc-Kianda is an annual event inserted in Luanda's festivities to reward short films produced from January to November each year.

 

Throughout the event, the programme includes samples of CPLP short films, lectures, workshops, debates and round tables on the state of Angolan cinema.
