About NBO

The NBO Film Festival was established with the aim of growing cinema going audiences in Nairobi by presenting notable films from around the world that are rarely presented in Nairobi through traditional lm distribution channels expanding Kenyan audiences’ appreciation on Kenyan made films through their presentation in a lively festival format.

We believe that filmmaking is one of the most critical ways that modern societies examine who they are and interrogate who they would collectively like to be.

We are firmly committed to the notion films are best experienced with an audience - where you experience your own emotions as you watch the films but are also conscious of the reactions of those around you.

We are also dedicated to the presentation of film in a manner that loyally honours the creative intentions of the filmmaker – sonically and visually by presenting the films using the best screening facilities in the city.
