What does it take to become a filmmaker

IF you live in an urban slum in Nairobi, Kenya?


Hot Sun Foundation,

Kibera Film School,


Supporters like you on Global Giving.

Comment by Joash Mageto, filmmaker

In six months, Kibera Film School transformed me into a new person. Today I am confident enough to make a movie of my own. I see a film with a director’s eye now. I have started loving cinema in a true sense only after coming here.


Remember us during the holiday season.

Your support makes it possible for us to become filmmakers!
