AFRIFF’s reward programme is designed to reward and uplift African filmmakers. Its reward system is evolving but it envisioned to be one of the best reward systems in terms of prizes and in terms of value delivered to participants.
AFRIFF is one of the very few film festivals in the continent or around the world accepting entries free of charge and still delivering one prize monies winning film entries without an income stream from ticketing. It delivers more than $10,000 dollars in Prize money in the 12 award categories for films in competition.
The best candidates from its talent development programme are also sponsored abroad for training annually, training a minimum of 15 candidates in the US and France since 2014.
