The OSCARS in Kenya

Published on: Sep 02, 2022



The Kenya Film Commission is officially recognized by the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences to set up an OSCARS Selection Committee from Industry Associations & Guilds to make submissions for the Best International Feature Film Award on behalf of the Kenyan filmmakers.

Other than the Best International Feature Film, the Committee can also submit a Documentary and Animation to compete for Best Documentary and Best Animation Feature Awards.

Annually, the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences (The Oscars) invites countries to submit an official entry of what the individual countries consider as their Best Film Projects. Only one (1) film is accepted from each Country. Given this important rule and regulation, the committee’s task is therefore to make a Call for Submissions from Kenyan Filmmakers and thereafter View and Select a film project – be it a Feature Film, Documentary or Animation – that meets the set-out Academy rules and regulations and Submit the same to the Academy.

The deadline to submit is set for the 14th of September. To submit for the 95th Academy Awards for Best International Feature Film Category Click Here
