As 2016 winds to a close, we take a quick moment to look back at AEFF’s recent achievements.
The African Environmental Film Foundation (AEFF) has made great strides over the past few years. AEFF is Africa’s only non-profit dedicated exclusively to providing environmental and conservation education through film and new media, presented in local languages.
We have a fulltime team of just 4 people in Africa, supported by our Board of Directors in the United States.
AEFF’s accomplishments include:
The widening of grass-roots distribution networks for our finished films, on DVDs, which now reach Government Authorities, school children, university students and adults in Kenya, Tanzania, South Sudan, DR Congo, West Africa, Namibia, Mozambique, South Africa, Botswana, Zambia, Cameroon and Uganda.
The indexing of AEFF’s entire film archive, consisting of over 750 hours of footage, which will allow this unique resource to be easily accessible for use in future AEFF educational films.
An additional two new film projects completed and the re-versioning of two older films by AEFF’s Founder, Simon Trevor, who has donated the educational rights to AEFF. Total number of films now at 27
Through donations, AEFF has been able to fund the production of new films and purchase new equipment (cameras, editing computers, software and accessories).
The negotiation of a distribution deal, which will bring AEFF’s films to 45 English speaking TV countries across Africa,
We thank you for your support, which has made all these achievements possible, and we invite you to join us again as we embark on further new educational film and new media projects in 2017.
