Storytelling is a cultural expression of humanity, with each story offering a window into the worldview of the community to which it belongs, along with its past. Artistic expression manifested through filmmaking, especially documentaries, has become the vehicle with which to tell not only human stories, but also celebrate cultural identity.
DJARFOGO INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL aim to create films focusing on the island of Fogo’s culture and history. We wish to involve local students in the island community in that creative process. We hope that by sharing their collective history, values, and aspirations on film, ones, which they have learned to create, it will contribute substantially to the self-esteem and validation of the youth of the city as well as educate and entertain the broader community.
