USIU-Africa and Kenya Film Commission (KFC) have signed a five-year Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that is aimed at making Kenya a first-class provider of screen entertainment for local, regional and international markets emanating from the quality and relevant training offered by the university.

The MoU will see both institutions jointly work together to build capacity through organizing film classes, workshops, seminars, film boot camps, short courses, projects, and programs.
