Maisha Database Online

We have recently revamped our website and updated it with all our latest productions and film labs. Visitors are able to view bios of all Maisha Alumni as well as the films they have produced and their mentors.


Since 2004 Maisha has provide hands-on intensives in screenwriting, directing, producing, cinematography, editing, sound recording, and acting. Under the moto: “If we don’t tell our stories, no one else will!”, we have been conducting yearly film labs which resulted in a data base with over 80 (short) films that tell stories of society, love, drama, and everything else.
