CEO and founder of the RCC, Eric Kabera, will be touring the US from September to November this year.
Eric’s main aim on this tour will be to meet with potential partners and supporters of RCC and reinforce our relationship with the TRIBECA Film Institute.
RCC along with the TRIBECA Film Institute are working to create an exchange program which will enable Film students from Rwanda to visit the US and get a first hand experience the US film industry. Film students from the US will get the same opportunity in Rwanda.
Eric will be visiting universities that have shown an interest in RCC and Rwandan films namely; the University of Southern California (USC) and some universities in Michigan. He will be meeting up with groups from Hollywood to further develop our relationship and will be talking especially to comedy writer Edward Greenberg.
This tour will also serve to present our achievements and prospects to the interested parties. Our progress on the independent movies theatre will especially be presented to Philip and Monica Rosenthal, who helped materialize it from a simple idea.In addition, Eric will be meeting with the manufacturers of inflatable screens in Utah to discuss and further explore the use of this technology.
Upon the success of Eric’s tour to the US, we hope to officially launch film classes at the first film institute in Rwanda (Rwanda Film Institute) by next year. We hope to have updated a yearly calendar and to have recruited mentors to kick-start this phenomenon.
Finally we hope to have introduced, to potential producers, our first comedy feature called CBB.(formerly under the title ‘Dodou Goes to the World Cup‘)
