The Namibia Film Week will kick off on Wednesday in Windhoek.

The four-day Namibian film screening events will showcase shorts, features, and documentaries all produced by Namibians. 

The initiative, a brainchild of the Namibia Film Commission, is part of their mandate to advance the local film industry.

Film Week further aims to create a platform to showcase new local films, create an appetite for local film productions and influence how people perceive the world through film.

The public will be treated to a different range of genres, film formats, and lengths throughout the four nights.

On Wednesday, Ompata, a high-tempo film by Nino Pequeno, will open the film week, followed by films such as Zula Boyz by veteran filmmaker Vickson Hangula.

The films will be screened at different venues across Windhoek, such as Lemon Tree Restaurant on the 26 and 29 of October, Katutura Community Art Centre on the 27th and the City of Windhoek New Building Upper Parking on the 28th of October.

The gates open at 19:30 and admission is free.
