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.

Review on by by Darlyne Komukama on December 3, 2014.

I love theatre. Theatre, as a medium, by virtue of its live nature is new every time you see it. Imperceptible shifts in the actors, the set, and the tech make each viewing a thing of its own. With 10 productions running over 5 days, the first annual Kampala International Theatre Festival was truly a thing of its own.
