What to expect

Kip Kompin Cinema presents to you an intimate evening with Sierra Leone’s most amazing emerging filmmakers from home and across the diaspora. Join us as we introduce you to a world you’ve never been to before, a world that explores Sierra Leone from the perspective of creatives who live and breathe Sierra Leone, a world where you no longer need to go searching for quality Sierra Leonean films because we’ve done the searching for you.

Our number one goal is production quality so expect our films to be visually stunning as films are supposed to be.

In addition to our feature screening, there will be performances from special guests, interactive quizzes, game-shows, and the opportunity to network with a room full of people passionate about Sierra Leone.

Feature film: Taxi

Taxi is a movie that takes place all in one night. It follows Mustapha, a down-and-out taxi driver who is a long night away from home, as he crosses paths with passengers from all walks of life in a series of interlinking stories taking place across Freetown, Sierra Leone.

Produced by Jamil Sesay and Directed by Sierra Leone’s most promising Director, Ibramim ‘Wizik’ Koroma, TAXI is a true blend of young Sierra Leonean talents working together to take Sierra Leone Cinema to the next level.

Fact: Taxi Drivers are the most informed group of people in the city of Freetown, because a large part of the population, be it old, young, rich or poor, would have interacted and possibly shared a snippet of their life story with one. Get dressed and join us for a ride this Black History Month, as we take you on a journey of love, loss and everything in between.

More films to be announced.
