Arts and Film for Social Change
LEGACY ARTS AND FILM LAB
Legacy Arts and Film Lab founded the Lake International PanAfrican Film Festival(LIPFF) in 2016, due to the gap in Festivals for Films in African Languages. We believe that African stories need to be told in African Languages as authentic as can be. The Festival has various activities from film screenings, workshops, panel discussions, Open forums, local tourism and the Gala Awards Ceremony.
Legacy Arts prides itself in valuing of education in the arts. We hold periodic workshops and panel discussions on creative works in the areas of film, theatre, gender, development and community issues. This is notable in our passion and drive towards mentorship, skills transfer, offering apprenticeship, internships and attachment to the youth in all our projects and during all our events and productions.
Legacy Arts and Film Lab aim is to continually produce quality feature films, documentaries, theatre productions and stage musicals with a focus on creating an avenue to use theatre & film and the arts for social change and to promote and nurture talent in the arts and film.
Legacy arts and film lab always have many events and opportunities including forums, festivals, shows, and films. We will keep you updated on our latest and past events
