The Kigali Audio-visual Forum is a platform for professionals to come together and discuss challenges and opportunities for the development of the Audio-visual industry on the continent. The four pillars of KAF are : Content, Intellectual Property, Financing and Sales and Distribution. The Rwanda Film Office has identified those 4 subjects as catalysts to the growth of the Industry in Rwanda and on the Continent.
