Rwanda Film Institute to offer Scholarships in Diploma Courses!

The Rwanda Film Institute is staged to offer both certificates and diplomas and in future affiliated degrees. Our vision for our program utilizes our institution mission statement as a foundation, while augmenting the overall strategic plan.
Our institute is poised for further growth and transition as we move forward over the next five years with a number of exciting initiatives and opportunities.
The aim of the institution is to provide media and film education to people in East Africa and great lakes region with a population exceeding 200 million people. A huge portion of this is comprised of young men and women who are keen and ready to venture into the media trade. The field is offering incredible opportunities to people in the region.
Our mandate is to train and give skills in media, arts and film education to our students. The reason for creating a film school was to ensure that a large number of people get involved in the media and other activities of arts and culture.
As we all know, Africa voice need to be heard and these voices may come from the heart of Africa. During the last decade, the Rwanda Cinema Centre where the idea of film school was born has excelled as a centre stage for film training in the region.
Our reputation in training young men and women in filmmaking techniques has been felt across Africa and abroad. Our student films are later shown to thousands of people in different locations of Rwanda using inflatable screens. This has endowed us the famous name ‘HILLYWOOD’ which means Cinema in the hills of Rwanda. We take films to the country side and screen them to excited audiences numbering five to ten thousand. It ends up as a godsend to most people who have limited access to TV, film or any form of entertainment.
Our students produce feature and short films which are not only shown in East Africa but have also been screened in several high profile film festivals such as Tribeca, Goteborg, Tokyo, Durban, and Fespaco among others.
The film school and our activities are supported by the ministry of sports and culture, Sida Rwanda, the Swedish Institute, the Goteborg Film Fund, Cinema Africa Tokyo, Rhenanie palatianate, Art Action to name but just a few.
We look life a little differently than most people. We see moments captured through the lens of a camera and the glow of a spotlight. We watch people in moments of desire, love, pain, sorrow and hope…’ If you want to be part of our team, if you have the heart and determination to put yourself out there and expose your passion
We welcome you! Turn your passion for films into a career
An application for Academic year 2011 Slated in JUNE is on progress and space is extremely limited!
Book early to avoid disappointments.

NB: Only few selected and deserving students will access scholarships. Email your full detailed profile explaining why you deserve the scholarship!

    Thanks Gilbert for your comment. It’s true we need to raise up to the occasion to raise our country flag through films. Watch this space for the exact course dates. @Millyon Kifle, it’s good news to hear from Ethiopia. Our school is not limited to Rwanda but entire region. We would like you to candidly explain in writing why you deserve the scholarship. You should also include your interest in filmmaking. Send your profile to rwandafilminstitute@gmail.com.
