Video Launch

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, our festival this year will be a celebration of our past works and artists. We will dig into our archives and share plays that have featured in previous years. Tune in on Tuesday November 24th at 2pm East Africa Time on our social media platforms to access a streamed video link that reminisces our previous festivals and reminds us of the power of theatre in promoting freedom of expression, and bringing people from around the world in one space.

Virtual Q&A

In place of our monthly conversations, we will be convening for a virtual question and answer session and meet and greet and celebration of KITF at 4pm East Africa Time on the same day.

Video Launch & Cocktail


The Kampala International Theater Festival is a 4-day festival organized each year in partnership between BAYIMBA Foundation and Tebere Arts Foundation as a platform that offers development of professionalism among theater practitioners and broadens access to Theatre by supporting and facilitating the presentation of Theatre productions.

This is achieved through the various workshops, jam sessions, productions and networking sessions that are programmed during the Festival.

The 7th edition is supposed to happen in November 2020 but due to Covid19 and how fast it spreads, we have decided to postpone the physical edition until further notice. We hope that an in-person gathering for our festival can be held again in 2021.
