As part of the Sinema Mashinani Roll-out (SMR), the Board has acquired and refurbished the Nairobi Film Centre (NFC), formerly known as Nairobi Cinema. This facility is bound to be the fort of Kenya’s Creative Economy by acting as a platform to screen films, one-stop-shop for film services in Kenya, and a stage for Art performances. Launched in November 2018, the 850-seater facility is equipped with state of-the-art facilities and continues to host screenings and stage performances.
NFC is a place of entertainment and offers filmmakers as well as players in the performing Arts sector a platform to showcase their talents.
