Haya Fatima Iqbal, Judy Kibinge

Doc­u­men­tary film making in Kenya & Pakistan 

- How to start and where to go to

Pan­eld­is­cus­sion with Judy Kibinge, Docubox (Nairo­bi) & Haya Fatima Iqbal, Doc­u­men­tary Asso­ci­a­tion Pak­istan (Karachi)

The two highly acclaimed film­mak­ers and pro­duc­ers dis­cuss the back­grounds and con­texts of doc­u­men­tary film­mak­ing in their coun­tries. Their con­ver­sa­tion will cover the train­ing and qual­i­fi­ca­tion of film­mak­ers, the pos­si­bil­i­ties and demand­ings of financ­ing as well as the part of the audi­ences one is pro­duc­ing a film for.

Judy Kibinge left a career in adver­tis­ing to write and direct both fic­tion and doc­u­men­tary films. Her film Dan­ger­ous Affair (2002) is cred­it­ed by many as the catal­y­sis of con­tem­po­rary film­mak­ing in Kenya. In 2013, she found­ed DOCUBOX to sup­port inde­pen­dent East African film­mak­ers with grants, labs and screenings.

Haya Fatima Iqbal is an Acad­e­my and two-time Emmy Award-win­ning doc­u­men­tary film­mak­er based in Pak­istan. She is Co-Founder of the Doc­u­men­tary Asso­ci­a­tion of Pak­istan (DAP), an ini­tia­tive to pro­mote the craft of doc­u­men­tary film­mak­ing in Pak­istan through build­ing com­mu­ni­ty, pro­vid­ing men­tor­ship, and deep­en­ing net­works between Pak­istani doc film­mak­ers and film markets.
