Kibera Film School trainees carry equipment
How is it possible for urban slum youth to travel across Nairobi, Kenya, a congested city with notorious traffic congestion to show their films in an open field?
How is it possible?
With your support!
Community Film Screening
Hot Sun Foundation working with K Youth Media www.facebook.com/KyouthMedia did it!
Youth from Kibera rented a mini-van, filled it with equipment and their enthusiasm to bring their short films to youth in an urban slum on the other side of town
Over 3,000 people from the Kariobangi urban slum attended the screening of short films made by youth at Hot Sun Foundation.
Feedback from audience
A young woman commented: I can’t believe it’s you people that made these films. They are inspirational. How can I join you?
The audience asked Hot Sun Foundation to organise more screenings because they feel their slum has been left behind in filming and audio-visual story telling.
You can make MORE community screenings possible
Hot Sun Foundation working with partners like K Youth Media has to fundraise for every community screening they do.
Each community screening costs $530 for transport, generator fuel, flyers, benches, and rental of the grounds.
Hot Sun Foundation charges NO screening fees for their films nor do they receive any payment for their services.
Your donation makes it possible for urban slum youth to make and see films by and about themselves.
During this holiday time, donate to goto.gg/3632 to ensure that MORE community screenings can happen in the urban slums of Nairobi, Kenya.
For a unique holiday gift, you can purchase our DVDs on buykiberakid.com
Thank you for making a difference!
