Dagoretti Film Centre is a video and music social enterprise set in Nairobi that brings out the voices of young Africans and provides quality audiovisual services produced through a participatory approach.
Dagoretti Film Centre is an enterprise created within the context of the training and film production centre “Dagoretti Child Development Centre” managed by Amref Health Africa and has been active since 2000 in Nairobi. In 2021, DFC started to work to become an independent enterprise; thanks to its participatory approach, it enables many young people to express themselves with screenplays and video techniques, while supporting their employment in the country’s fast-growing audiovisual and film market.
In April 2022, DFC was selected by the E4Impact Accelerator programme in Nairobi.
The company participates in the business platform organised to encourage, also through matching, greater involvement of Italian companies in projects aimed at reaching the Sustainable Development Goals in partner countries.
The platform aims at promoting effective partnerships between public, public-private and civil society actors (Target 17.1) and at strengthening the role of the private sector as a driver of development and growth in complex geographies.
