Kenyan film to feature in NY Film-fest


A Kenyan short-film has been chosen to feature in the Manhattan International Film Festival later this year.

BROTHER-brother by producer/director Sheila Mulinya will be screened at the Festival in New York.

“It has been selected for screening and master class at the Manhattan International Film Festival that is going down in New York on 27th and 28th June 2012,” says Sheila.

“If it manages the top 3 positions it is supposed to be shown at the United Nations headquarters!” she adds.

The Manhattan Festival prides itself on being dedicated to merging as large a gathering as possible of independent filmmakers from all over the world. Their forums are mainly targeted at developing new ways to fund filmmakers and helping to carving out their careers.

The 10-day event kicks off on June 21 and runs until July 1.

The focus of the festival is Human Dignity stories. Sheila’s production will be used during sessions on Funding and Marketing for independent films.

BROTHER-Brother is the story of sibling rivalry between two brothers who live in Kawangware, Nairobi. It was shot in August 2008. Check out the film below.
