Welcome to the Accountability Film Festival (AFF)!
The festival is initiated with an objective of engaging youths for telling accountability stories. Films can be a powerful medium for spreading ideas, changing perceptions, telling the untold stories of corruption, exploitation, fraud and irregularities in our society, and making citizens and power-holders more accountable. 

Awards & Prizes

WINNERs will receive a trophy, certificate, laurels and promotion on our social media.
At this time, we welcome directors to join us for the screening but we cannot subsidise travel or accommodation.
