Kalasha International Film & TV Awards records the highest number of entries;

Kenya Film Commission would like to announce that submission of films for the 2017 Film and TV Awards has officially closed. This year, the commission registered the highest number of entries ever received since the inception of Kalasha International, with the submission of 237 films!, an affirmation of the credibility of the Kalasha over the last 7 years and the fact that more film makers are keen to have Kenyans consume local content.

The Awards gala is our very own Kenyan Oscars with various categories spanning feature films, short films, documentaries, T.V documentaries, T.V commercials, T.V drama, T.V comedies and TV shows.

The Jury is currently vetting all the films in preparation for the unveil of the 2017 nominees and probably one of the grandest event in 2017- Kalasha Film & TV Awards scheduled for Saturday 9th December 2017.

This year, the Kalasha International has been split in 3 with the Kalasha International Film Festival set from 4th – 8th December 2017 and the market set for March 2018.

Kalasha International is the biggest film market in East Africa bringing under one roof a Film Festival, a Film & TV Awards and a Film & TV Market.
