The Zanzibar International Film Festival (ZIFF), the largest arts and culture festival in East Africa, has released its date and theme for next year. The theme will be “This Journey of Ours: Ndiyo hii Safari Yetu,” representing the significance of the journey no matter the destination.

On the theme, ZIFF Director Martin Mhando said, “Any journey is symbolic of life, with its trials and tribulations, its highs and lows and with its destinations that change with time. On the road of life the journey transforms us through its bends and long stretches making speed a companion of ours like the shadow.” The theme will be inspiration for next year’s submissions and programming, from exhibitions and workshops to film screenings. 

The 19th edition of the arts and culture festival will take place from July 9-16, 2016.
