Film – Each year, some of the most captivating and cutting-edge cinema from Africa and beyond is screened in venues across the island. From world-premiers to local shorts, they have it all, with a long history of showcasing the highest quality film from all over the world. Films are submitted based on a yearly theme and entered into various categories and competitions. The final night is an awards night, where the winning films are recognised and celebrated.
Music – ZIFF also puts on the island’s best parties. Live music, dance, DJs and performance across several venues means that carnival fever hits Zanzibar for 2 weeks! They bring musicians together from all over Africa, as well as recognised international acts.
Community – A Zanzibar institution, ZIFF is a truly local festival, with exhibitions, workshops, and cultural tours that take you to the heart of the community.
