KinoNamia back with second edition

10 August 2018 | Art and Entertainment

Back for the second year, KinoNamia looks to engage professional and non-professional filmmakers.

KinoNamia is a festival which will bring together talents from the creative fields to produce short local stories within 48 hours. Organised as part of an international movement called KinoKabaret, KinoNamia is a film hub for international filmmakers to share multiple ideas in a short period of time. The festival will provide a platform for directors, actors, cameramen, editors, sound engineers, and everyone who would like to express their creativity in the film industry.

In partnership with the Namibia Film Commission, the Goethe Institute, Cramer's and Poiyah Media, this year's festival is organised by Hannah Lesch, Julia Odoj, Andreas Elifas, Berny Baisako, The First Victor, Comfort Ajibola, TutaleniLekido, Daniel Mgawi and Costa Katuuo. One of the organisers who inspired this year's theme, Daniel Mgawi, said KinoNamia was stirred from the diversity of Namibian cultures, fauna and flora. He scouted the theme from the lifestyle of the San tribe and the Kalahari Desert.

“I saw a picture of a San woman wearing a beaded headband which had a distinct pattern of squares. I grasped that concept and added them to the KinoNamia colours. The San tribe and Kalahari Desert, share in this uniqueness, and rareness of Namibia and putting this together is just a perfect depiction of what Namibia is, beautiful, strong, resilient and rare,” he said.

The festival will allow professionals and non-professionals from different cultures to produce short local stories within two days and will take place from 25 to 27 of this month. Participants will form groups on the first day and will be expected to have their films ready for a public screening on the third and last day. In anticipation of the event, the organisers have created orange minions to hype up the festival.

“The minions are inspired by the green screen outfits that filmmakers use in production. We created our minions in orange to symbolise KinoNamia and they are really fun and bring everything to life. We have also incorporated them in most of our promotional videos so do check them out on our social media platforms,” said Andreas Elifas.
