Capital FM’s Samuel Wanjohi feted at the Kenya International Sports Film Festival

Samuel Wanjohi’s production wins again.

The young film-maker has been honored yet again for his documentary “Imara”  for “Best Short Documentary”.The passionate film-maker celebrated the win from the inaugural Kenya International Sports Film Festival 2018, which saw his production feted for its intriguing take on the determination of a disabled athlete.

Receiving over 10 nominations for the riveting documentary, and “Best Documentary” win at the Riverwood Awards 2018 only months ago, Wanjohi is quickly establishing his name in the industry. Speaking to The Sauce about the prestigious win, Wanjohi shared “It’s always an honor to get your work recognized and so I’m more than glad for the award plus it has also refueled me towards working even harder to candidly tell the amazing stories within our communities and the great things that people are doing everywhere.”

The Kenya International Sports Film Festival which runs with the aim of highlighting “great films from creative filmmakers” saw a total of 1323 films from all over the world submitted for the awards. The jurors were judging from 191 entries that made the initial selection, and only the best will make the final cut according to KISFF.

Safinaz Foundation is a Kenyan registered charity dedicated to promoting sports in Kenya. Alpha Sports Ltd, is the publisher of Kenya’s oldest and longest-running sports magazine – Sports Monthly Magazine – which has been in circulation for the past 18 years.
