South Sudanese Filmmakers Prepare for the First Film Festival in Their Country

May 24, 2017

South Sudan held its first film festival last year - the Juba Film Festival.

In this video, aspiring filmmakers talk about the process of learning how to tell stories with film through their involvement in a workshop funded by Internews and USAID. Four scripts from the workshop were chosen to be produced and featured at the film festival.

"When I was called that my script came in the top four, I was really happy. I was just writing my script out of my passion because I just enjoy having stories being told." —a participant in the workshop.
