This year’s Zimbabwe International Film Festival (ZIFF) will witness local film makers celebrate the growth of the film industry that was necessitated by advent of technology and digitalisation.

Last year, more than 100 people submitted their short films for the 18th edition of the ZIFF.

Local film producers said new technology will see more films being produced.

ZIIF consultant, Makai Matema said the festival will enhance participation by film makers and producers from all sectors.

This year’s festival will run from 26 August to 2 September under the theme: ‘The Business of Film.’
