The Tanzanian movie industry is a fast-growing industry. It is said to be the second-largest in Africa after Nigeria at the moment. Our productions are shown in all of Africa through satellite channels.

Our model of production includes pairing and collaborating with the Tanzanian Youth. Interns will work on a production team with individuals from all backgrounds and skill levels. Come ready to learn the innovative style of Tanzanian filmmaking and ready to share what you know while working with great equipment!

This volunteer -  internship program is to assist Tanzania's young talented Film industry artists and professionals to develop their skills. We have already created and further assisted Tanzanian film teams to produce music videos, short documentaries, and full movies. In Tanzania we have no proper education for Film production and our model is to get professional personnel and students from the western world to perform in work training for the Tanzanian counterparts.

Our film program is our main media tool to give visibility to community issues for the public in common in Tanzania.

Typical day

Filmmaking does not look watch.

Scriptwriting can happen at any time. Many even prefer nighttime when it is peaceful. Also, the local team prefers evening hours onwards as they are free for the scripts and teamwork commonly happening online.

When the shooting starts many times the team works around the clock,

Editing is then more like scheduled work and one can enjoy normal working hours.

Overall this work does not know time limitations but the team is very flexible and you can always find a compromise.

Free-time activities

During your free time, you can enjoy low-cost safaris to Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, and other National parks. You can join our groups climbing Mt Kilimanjaro and move on to relax at Zanzibar beaches. We have also a variety of one-day programs for short breaks as diving and snookering at the reefs, swimming with dolphins, rainforest trekking at Kilimanjaro, live African music, a variety of sports programs, craft making as batik making courses, and so on. You will enjoy your stay in Tanzania.

Our eco-compound in Madale village in the Dar es Salaam area has dorms, single, double, and family rooms. As an eco-compound we use our own design composting dry toilets, we collect shower water and urine and use it as "grey water" for our large garden irrigation. Construction materials include bamboo, recycled bottles, and similar. This compound is located in Madale village, so it is a countryside place but a short distance from the city as well.

We charge accommodation with breakfast and dinner only. 

Dorm Room Guest Family Bedroom (Single) Bedroom (Double)
Food & Beverages

We serve breakfast and dinner as accommodation inclusive. Lunches are available at a nominal cost, but you need to book one every morning as many people are not at the compound we cook and charge only those who are present and wish to have lunch.

All drinks are personal cost. Drinking water is available everywhere at a low cost. We also run a compound bar, so you have easy access to drinks and snacks. 

Internet Access
Good access at the project site
What's NOT included?
Visa, flights, travel insurance or vaccinations are NOT included in the program fees. An airport pickup isn't included within the program fees either.
Flight Tickets
The nearest airport is Julius Nyerere International Airport (DAR) in Dar Es Salaam. We assist you to find cheap flights to Tanzania.
Travel Insurance
Going abroad is an adventure and it is always best to be prepared. Sudden illness or injury, cancellation or theft - a travel insurance for Tanzania provides security and is a plus to have.
If you are intending to volunteer in Tanzania you should seek medical advice before starting your social journey. Check your required vaccinations for Tanzania.
