Cameroon International Film Festival- CAMIFF
The 3rd annual Cameroon International Film Festival-CAMIFF is on its third day of screenings and workshop in Buea. As mentioned in my previous post (here), the festival will provide filmmakers with alternative views and possible filming locations around Cameroon. Furthermore, the festival is a great place to celebrate the rich cultural heritage of Cameroon.
Most importantly, it is also a great platform to learn all about filmmaking in partnership with Canon. Note that, #CAMIFF has partnered with CANON to run a basic DSLR filmmaking workshop. The training took off on the 23rd of April and will run till 27th at Mountain hotel in Buea.
