By CTW Team

On Friday, November 26 and Saturday, November 27, the Department of Cinematic Arts, in conjunction with the Kalasha Awards will be hosting a screening of the student films that were recently nominated for the upcoming Kalasha Awards.

Among the films that will be screened include Knock (2021), directed by Kelvin Osoo and House of Secrets (2021) directed by Michelle Donde and Steph Sevani. These films made it to the top five in six award categories.

The students worked in teams to produce industry-standard films, which were partly assessed internally and partly assessed by industry filmmakers who came on campus at the end of the Summer 2021 semester to watch and give constructive feedback to the students’ work.

Kalasha is an annual international film and TV Awards ceremony, dubbed the Kenyan Oscars and showcases and awards crème de la crème of film and TV talents in Kenya and beyond. USIU-Arica has been nominated in the categories of Best Feature by a student, Best Short Film, Best Sound Designer, Best Special Effects, Best Director and Best Director of Photography.

The screening will be held at the Auditorium, and will be open to all members of the University community. Other invited guests at the screening will include potential students who have expressed interest in various programs at the School of Communication, Cinematic and Creative Arts.
