Project description

The Yennenga Centre is the first cultural centre dedicated to cinema in Senegal. A true incubator, it offers training, support for the creation and distribution of films and audiovisual material. It aims to promote local cinema, accessible to all, and to introduce the younger generation to the impact of the image on society.

In 2019, the Yennenga centre launched “Cinexale” to develop a culture of cinema and the image among a young audience. During the first year, 25 children were able to participate in a creative programme, at the end of which 3 short films were made. The Yennenga Centre has been awarded a development fund in order to continue this initiative, to enable more children to benefit from it and to launch a film club specifically for 6-12 year olds.
