Eric Kabera is one of the East African icons that October saw in celebration among the Rwandan Film fraternity. Kabera was awarded with a Gold Label prestigious recognition by the Pan-African Film Consortium October this year. This honor is given to outstanding individuals who are valuable to African Cinema.
Eric Kabera is an exceptional Film maker, who is also the founder of Rwanda Film Center and Kwetu Film Institute- the first private film school which has nurtured many young film makers and acts too.
The award winning icon made a breakthrough in 2001, when he released his first film, and the first film about the 1994 Rwandan Genocide against the Tutsis- using the actual locations, which earned him great recognition, having stood out as a Rwandan to tell his own story.
Watch Intore, one of Kabera’s latest films
Mr. Kabera didn’t stop on that, but has in recent years worked on more projects, which have attracted and won several awards internationally- making him one of the few outstanding East African Film makers.
