The Broadcast Film and Music Africa 2014 exhibition, organized by AITEC at the KICC in downtown Nairobi, Kenya on Monday 26th and Tuesday 27th, was a great place to be. Hot Sun Foundation had a stand where we met hundreds of people and had conversations about our film training programs, Film Fupi Fest (a collective of upcoming filmmakers) and our Red Epic workshop in June.
There were many outstanding exhibitors of the broadcast and film industry at the exhibition. We had a very fruitful discussion with Thomas Binsert, Sales Director Africa & Middle East, who donated an ARRI Lighting Kit to Hot Sun Film School last year. We had interesting talks with Delmar Estabillo of United Broadcast & Media Solutions, some representatives from Sony, and Sriram Bhartatam, Founder and Chief Mentor of Kuza Biashara. We had the chance to meet people during the workshops that were organized according to the exhibition’s theme “AfRIWOOD Rising”.
BFMA is a great place to connect with other filmmakers and practitioners in the broadcast and film sector. During these two days we had the opportunity to present Hot Sun Foundation to a wide variety of people. Our stand was very popular and people responded well. We answered queries about our training center, our content, the Film Fupi Fest and our workshops. As the curtain fell on AITEC 2014, we could say, “we were glad we came”.
