Kenyan film Nairobi Half Life to air in select US cities March 21

Nairobi Half Life, Kenya’s first official submission for the Academy Awards ® and AFI Fest Audience Award recipient, is the winner of the inauguralFeature Film Project, and will screen in fifty theaters around the United States on March 21,2013.  Audiences at these screenings will be asked to vote, and if the majority approve, the film will return to every participating theater for a full one-week run.

Conceived by MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival founder Nicholas Mason (whose 16-year-old, week-long film festival programs a slate of short films in 300 cinemas on the six habitable contents one week of every year), the Feature Film Project lets audiences decide a film’s theatrical fate.

“It’s the public that creates stars,” said Mason. “And we certainly hope that Thursday, March 21st, will be Nairobi Half Life‘s coronation.”
