 "We are very excited to be doing this [film festival] now," Agbor Gilbert, founder of CAMIFF tells DCODED TV.

"CAMIFF is to give an opportunity for English-speaking Cameroonian film makers, to sell their movies without stress and allow the Francophones to also introduce their films to buyers from across the world." he adds. 

Abgor also emphasize the fact that the film festival could encourage employment within the six-day span of the event.

"With the festival holding in this town [Buea], there will be employment for a lot of people. Hotels will make money, restaurants will make money, call box [phone call business] will make money and we could even have a foreign film maker collaborate with our local film makers to do co-production and expand distribution," he continued.

CAMIFF is scheduled to hold in Buea, South West Region from April 25 - 30.
