In His Own Words;
Born in 1982, I lost my parents at a tender age and couldn’t complete my studies, as I wished due to lack of financial means. However, that situation didn’t hold me back from thinking on something professional I could do to develop myself both intellectually and financially and also support others in need as much as I can. This is the utmost reason why I had plans to join the KWETU Film Institute.

Filmmaking is my favorite profession and I value it very much and hope it will help me to reach high and achieve my ambition.I am a big fan of the sensational film Africa Unitedbecause it was done professionally involving very young people that I can easily relate with.

In the near future am interested in making “Drama” movies.
Once again I really appreciate your offer of three months scholarship at KWETU Film Institute.

In Her Own Words

My love for films can be traced way back to my primary school days. I remember as a little girl, I would struggle prioritizing between catching a favorite cartoon and have my dinner! I believed the cartoon was more important. My mom developed a new calling that was geared in reminding me that films were after all fake. However, It is this close relationship between fake and real that has been propelling me in the industry. This bursary could not have come at a better time and is the catalyst that I badly needed to succeed.
Early last month, I was very proud when I was requested to have my voice and song incorporated in an animation film produced by the KWETU Film Institute. I am promising the Institute and my sponsor that I will make maximum use of my time at the school.
I am thankful for such a rare opportunity in Rwanda. I am now more than ever before quite sure that I will finally emerge one of the best sound designer in the region. Thanks!

CAREER FIELD: Claudine is looking forward to specialize in Sound Design!

In His Own Words
I am 22 years old, current student at the KWETU Film Institute. First and foremost, I consider all films as my lifelong passion. Secondly, i consider films as the only one way I can use to transmit messages to a global audience!

I have a personal touch on comedies because they make me laugh even when I’m sad. The hollywood film director, James Cameron of the Avatar fame is one of my idols. He is genius at his own class and loves his job.

In the near future, i would like to make animation films. I was inspired after taking part at the just concluded animation workshop at KWETU Film Institute. The two weeks extensive workshop saw the successful production of five amazing short films in animation! Honestly, i am still cerebrating!
I am a great reader of Empire magazine, as it gives me breaking movie news, interviews of some famous actors, directors and producers. Lastly, I would like to salute my sponsors a wonderful opportunity to further my skills in filmmaking through this bursary. May God may bless you!
