RCC is founded by Eric Kabera. Rwanda Cinema Centre from time of inception has founded two important operations directed to improving film and new media in Rwanda. This is the Rwanda international film festival that has initiated the For youth by youth program, Film for change outreach project and now gradually developing the Rwanda cinema Centre skills training unit which has trained more than one hundred students from its inception. Yearly through the youth for youth program and workshops we deliver twenty students into the market, another brain child from the Founder, Eric Kabera in learning by doing.
These developments strive at building the filmmaking and new media ground and also provide important outlets for students seeking to gain experience in filmmaking. Since these humble beginnings, the Rwanda Cinema Centre has grown in size and stature over the last 10 years to become one of the upcoming and leading filmmaking centre in east and Central Africa and especially the Great lakes region. Currently, the Centre is the creative point for the youth, technical and administrative staff that currently benefit from the collaboration workshops and filmmaking initiatives.
The Centre is staged to offer both certificates and Diplomas and in future affiliated degrees. Our vision for our program utilizes our institution mission statement as a foundation, while augmenting the overall strategic initiatives related to the planned institute Academic Plan. The Centre is poised for further growth and transition as we move forward over the next five years with a number of exciting initiatives and opportunities.
