Local Content

The Kenya Film Commission (KFC) is working to see that local content flourishes in the country and that the film industry is recognized as a potential employer and a main contributor to the economic growth of the country.

We exist to foster a successful film industry in Kenya and the expression of Kenyan culture on screen. Our role is consistent with the Government’s priorities to build a more competitive and productive economy and deliver better public services to Kenyan people and the world.

Significant economic value is derived from spending in Kenya by offshore interests. Film sector activity in Kenya also generates important spill-over benefits to other parts of the economy e.g. transfer of skills and technology to other sectors and international connections for trade and diplomacy.
