It has given me great joy and pleasure to have the opportunity to organize nepal Africa Film Festival. It has not been an ease task and i feel humbled to see the realization of this project in the manner envisioned.
To talk about nepalease society, particularly Nepalese youths there is no denying that it is overwhelmingly swayed by western movies and culture. They have scarcely heard about Africa and movies they tend to ignore.
With this notion in mind, college of Journalism and Mass Communication has set its heart n organizing Africa Film Festival beginning 23rd to 25th of May 2011 for the first tmie in the history of Nepali films with an objective to expose African movies to nepalese viewers.
The aim of this Festival is to showcase African dulture the is little knowen among the nepali peopole We hope that thecontratieties and complexities of life can be protrayed through this festival howse theme is seeing Africa through African lens.
Also, the college hope that this festival will further strengthen the relations between the college and eight African countrie s with which it has been working in close partnership for the last four years under FK exchange program of Norway.
Finally, I express my deeply felt gratitude to all who have generously supported this project whether by contributing resources, advance or moral support. I thank you all for without all of your support this festival wouldn't come into a reality.
