Smartphone videographers still have a chance to submit their four-minute film shorts to Alliance Francaise where they’re conducting the 2nd Smartphone Film Competition.

The deadline for Kenyans entering the film shorts is September 30.

The winning shorts will be shown during this year’s French Film Festival, which as always will bring some of the best French films produced previous years to Nairobi audiences. Adjudicators of the Kenyan shorts are Judy Kibinge, a filmmaker and founder of DocuBox, Cajeton Boy, scriptwriter and filmmaker, Mwaniki Mwagira.

This year’s festival will run from October 9 –13. Having the theme, ‘Family stories’ the festival will feature a wide range of award-winning films.
