Short films building grassroots screen culture
The Namibian Film Commission’s most recent contributions to the industry was supposed to be celebrated in style but they never reckoned with the exuberance of Namibia’s communications and reporting community.
Earlier this week the Film Commission shared their achievements of the past financial year, highlighting their mandate to build future audiences and market its annual projects by screening two short films, Tjitji: The Himba Girl, and Coming Home. These supporters, however, celebrated in their own style.
