Mboro Festival du Cinéma

Pioneering film festival in the region of Dakar, Senegal, offering film screening and workshops about African Cinematography.

Mboro Sur Mer is a small village near the capital of Senegal, Dakar. Working with the local non-profit organization Project Japoo, my organization Colectivo Piloto created “Mboro Festival du Cinéma” to contribute to the education of the population through film screenings, mainly from African filmmakers, but also workshops, lectures, debates and concerts, all performed by local artists.

“Mboro Festival du Cinéma” shows to its participants and its public that, despite its economical situation, Africa also possesses audiovisual capabilities, and that these are the reflection of their rich culture and history.

With its diverse sections of participation,”Barcelona VisualSound” has been active for more than 12 years promoting young artists and helping them to grow professionally.

By decentering activities from the downtown main theaters, it also brings audiovisual culture to all Barcelona’s neighborhoods and encourages diverse public gatherings.

I have been working for the “Barcelona VisualSound” during more than 4 years planning and managing film screenings, exhibitions and conferences, and managing the documentary section.
