Zimbabwe on the big screen

Filmmakers overcome political and financial problems to tell their stories at Harare's 16th international film festival.

    It is not easy being a budding film director in Zimbabwe with censorship, lack of funding, and political problems all presenting their own challenges. 

    But this has not stopped them telling their stories. The 16th international film festival in the capital Harare showed what they had to offer. 

    The festival is a chance for filmmakers to promote their work and tell their stories through the medium.
