Run in cities across the world, Stories is an intensive residential filmmaking laboratory which guides and mentors filmmakers, helping them shape the stories they want to tell into festival ready films within a short period of time. This year’s East Africa cohort consists of six filmmakers from Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda, and Sudan. Their films tell personal, inspiring, intimate, and socially relevant stories of home, community, creativity, passion, family, relationships, and the environment.
