Biography

Kibwe was the toast of Cannes last year.  He was named one of the top twenty young global Directors at the Saatchi & Saatchi New Director’s showcase; won Best Short Film Award for ‘Jonah’ at the CFP_E/Shots Young Director’s Award plus the Special Jury Prize (only the sixth recipient in the award’s fifteen year history to do so); and to top it all off, he also walked away with the Audience Award.  Good stuff for someone who only graduated a few years ago..

Kibwe’s entry into film was an unconventional one.  An alumnus of the Bartlett School of Architecture, his graduation film, ‘Robots of Brixton’, won the Special Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival.  Other accolades include a prestigious TED fellowship and recognition as one of Fast Company’s ‘100 Most Creative People in Business’.

Kibwe combines his training as an architect with his love of storytelling and animation to create futuristic 3D live action/animated films that are incredibly detailed, vivid, kinetic feasts.
