Festival international du Film de Zanzibar 2011 (ZIFF)
14ème édition. Thème: « A Season of Visions »

Français

Voici le plus grand événement culturel de Zanzibar, et peut-être même de la Tanzanie. Zanzibar Town, aussi connue sous le nom de Stone Town, organise le plus grand festival des îles Zanzibar, aussi appelé le festival des pays Dhow. C’est l’occasion de découvrir l’héritage culturel de l’Afrique de l’Est, de l’océan Indien et du Moyen-Orient, voire de l’Asie du Sud-Est, notamment à travers le cinéma.
Les ingrédients de cet événement sont des projections de films bien sûr, des conférences, des ateliers, des représentations théâtrales, de la littérature, de la danse, du spectacle vivant. Vous trouverez également une variété de concerts de musique traditionnelle et contemporaine donnés par des artistes locaux ou internationaux, ainsi que des expositions.
La majorité des événements sont organisés à Stone Town ou Zanzibar Town (au fort arabe notamment), située sur l’île principale de Zanzibar (l’île Ujunga), mais l’île de Pemba célèbre aussi ce festival.
