Our main role is to help in the facilitations during the opening and closing of the events apart from documenting the entire festival in the form of pictures and movies which we shall later professionally compile for AAFF promotion in all related platforms. Networking is the key for any organisation that is willing to open its does to new ideas, innovations, partnerships etc. During the event we shall have our team, brochures and poster spread the word out especially in the forthcoming master classes at the Moving Tanzania Hub which we host at our main offices located at Moivaro road.
