InformAction (IFA) was established in Nairobi, 2010, after it’s flagship film Getting Justice: Kenya’s Deadly Game of Wait and See (link) was used locally and internationally in the battle to hold politicians accountable for the disastrous 2007 General Elections.
IFA has since produced a number of acclaimed documentaries and civic films about impunity, leadership and human rights, which it shows through a network of field offices and local community-based organisations. Attracting large audiences in some of the remotest regions of Kenya, IFA uses the voice of ordinary people to encourage peaceful change.
Working in both private and non-profit sectors, the company is staffed by journalists, activists and researchers. It is equipped with cameras, sound systems, mobile screens, edit suites and generators to produce high quality films and features. IFA partners with its sister company, Voxcom Ltd, (link)which sells films locally and internationally. This relationship and the commercial viability of the products have made InformAction sustainable and independent.
