Introducing Ratu International Festival: Fashion, Movie & Music

 We are excited to announce the launch of Ratu International Festival (RATU-IFMM) which will take place in Douala at Maison Du Parti Bonanjo.

It is going to be an international Festival aimed at showcasing Cameroon fashion, movie and music.
This concept was conceived by Ratu Erma OLIERHOEK and will offer a platform where young and emerging talented Cameroonians could showcase their innovative ideas through Fashion, Music and Movies.
This first edition of the Ratu Festival has attracted both national and international personalities who are keen on exploiting such creativity. One of the goals is to create opportunities for networking and to be known beyond the national territory.
The program has been scheduled to start from the 29th to the 31st of October 2015, at various locations with the main activity at the Maison Du Parti Bonanjo. The Ratu Festival will leave a lasting impression in the Cameroon entertainment industry, making a difference and creating a balance.

Looking at the huge talent within the fashion and entertainment industry in Cameroon, it is definite that the Festival will educate, promote and celebrate Fashion, Music and Movie.

For an effective event, there are three core activities to ensure a fair and consistent selection:
- Competitions to promote young designers, movie producers and musicians,
- Workshop to educate young designers, movie producers and musicians
- Exhibitions , concerts and gala to celebrate with both national and international guests
Participants in all categories are expected to submit their materials to the team via designated channels such as the website, the Facebook page and others to be announced. The selection criteria will ensure that participants are fairly evaluated and rewarded as merit.
The members of the jury are high profiled professionals with more than 50 years of combined experience at both international and national levels in the fashion and entertainment industries.

Upon submission, the jury, will pre-select 10 designers to be featured on the catwalk, with an opportunity to showcase their designs. There will be a movie screening of three selected movies, which will be screen and evaluated with ratings. In the music category, 9 musicians are expected to participate in the overall contest.
