Accra Indie Filmfest is a non-profit organisation established to serve as a hub for the
emerging and independent filmmakers searching for their own voices in storytelling. As part
of the new phase the Ghana film industry is experiencing, there is the need to contribute to
the solution by tackling the problem from the core foundation of it.
We seek to address some of the major challenges faced by young and independent
filmmakers producing short films in Ghana especially which is the lack of conducive space of
tolerance for them to explore, learn and grow their crafts. AiF hopes to achieve this goal
through organised workshops, celebrating, and honouring the efforts of these young
filmmakers as well as the zeal to co-produce and to create without limit.
We believe that great feature films are as the result of a critical care and attention to the
production of short films where all mistakes can be made and managed. Accra Indie Filmfest
(AiF) exist to create the platform that will necessitate the production of short films with
confidence and pride.
Accra Indie Filmfest (AiF) is powered by Keghan Studios and looks forward to combining
both closed and opened space cinema experience for young and independent filmmakers all
across the world in Accra in November and to also reiterate that short films are the gateway
to wonderful feature films.
