FilmAid proudly invites you to experience stories of courage, strife and human determination, as told by refugee filmmakers at the 7th edition of the FilmAid Film Festival - from 21-23rd August 2013 at Alliance Française in Nairobi. The festival will showcase award-winning films and documentaries from refugee filmmakers studying through FilmAid’s Filmmaker Training Program. The program allows refugee filmmakers to tell their own stories of courage, hope, despair and resilience in their own voices. The selected films provide a rare opportunity for the filmmakers to share the stories of refugees who have been forced to flee their homes to escape persecution, wars, or conflict. Alongside these films, there will be a selection of international feature films complementing the work of the refugee filmmakers.

Q: Hi Mr. Martens, I recently purchased a Military Song book and there is a signature on the inside of "William J. Martens" and the date of 1958. Is this a book that may be connected to you? Thank you
A: Hey, Thanks for the message. No, I was at that moment just 8 years old. There was some time to go before I bought music books. Perhaps one of my older relatives who loved military marches, indeed. Best regards, William
