CINEKIN : Bringing Cinema to Congo-Kinshasa

As you can probably relate, going to see a film can take us to a new place, inspire us and speak to us like no other medium can. That is why, Tarik Lizani, Laura Mandret, Steve Munga and Natacha Ruiz, have created “CINEKIN” and now people from Kinshasa can, for the first time, experience the magic offered by the high-resolution film, one of the most inspiring and important industries in the world. “CINEKIN” is the first cinema offering instant film and high definition in Congo-Kinshasa. We will show films in Kinshasa from the biggest distributors along with their international releases. We want to offer a full cinema experience including popcorns, local food, HD screen, Dolby surround, great seat, air conditioner, all the material for very special time to share with family, friend or lover.

Thanks to CINEKIN we bring the 7th art in Congo-Kinshasa for the first time since 4 decades. 

The goal of this campaign is to reach like-minded people for collaboration, raise money in exchange for early access and rewards, and we also want to spread the word. The more people we can get using “CINEKIN” the more functional and successful it will be. So this campaign will give you the basics on our efforts and progress. Beyond that we encourage you to ask us questions, donate and get involved. We developed “CINEKIN” for your benefit, so enjoy! We believe we are really onto an easier way to bring feature films to Congo-Kinshasa with a fraction of the work. Do you ever think about the impact that film has had on your life? Do you want to help others have this experience but don’t know how? Do you believe that film can be a catalyst for change in other countries? If you answered, “Yes” to any of these questions, you may want to keep reading… 

Sharing the Magic of Movies : 

Thanks to CINEKIN we will develop a new social entertainment in the Democratic Republic of Congo. A true living space, comfort, culture, meetings and entertainment in the urban environment heart, in safe, dynamic and warm neighborhoods. A new social experience, new jobs opportunities, discovering others cultures around the planet in first row, never missed a big movie anymore. 

With big dreams for a feature film center and a small budget, often times a collaborative effort is necessary to make the film a reality. An environment where everyone pulls together their expertise to make one fully functioning machine of talent is the best way to make our dreams come true. It just so happens this film team has all the components to be the perfect team and starting point for collaboration. As the creator I am relying on the believers to make this film cinema in Congo-Kinshasa possible. 

Overview 

Our popular culture reinforces the idea that starting a project of this size and scope is hard, time consuming and sometimes almost impossible. But we believe everyone will see the good in “CINEKIN” and join in our movement! Help us establish this initiative to serve people in need of a solution, give them hope, entertainment and inspiration. The stories expressed in film resonate with people who are trying to find strength in a tough place. Stories teach us, as only a few mediums can, about the essential wisdom of pushing through when times get tough, learning to fight against all odds. This cinema will bring so many positive messages to people: 

  • Learn about life’s inevitable obstacles 
  • How to persevere with grit and courage 
  • Entertain through universal lessons 

As little as €10 gets us one step closer to brining “CINEKIN” to life and to an individual. This cinema can change people’s ideas about what they can accomplish for the rest of his or her life. Finding out your struggles are worldwide and being able to relate, with ease will be life changing. Empower us to make this vision a reality with a donation to this project today!

More about the Project 

This project is really important for us because it will allow the public in Kinshasa to have access to the biggest blockbusters of the planet along with their releases in western theaters. So that we will bring more dreams, emotions, hope, thought to people in Kinshasa. – This fact prompted us to dig deeper into a solution. This is where we started to envision “CINEKIN” and all the possible benefits we could bring to people: 

  • 10% of the company's profits at the end of the year will be used to fund humanitarian and entrepreneurial projects to promote economic and social development of Congo providing the opportunity to entrepreneurs, local students to achieve their dreams 
  • Provide a magical experience to everyone 
  • Job creation 
  • Develop a new social entertainment 

When reviewing these benefits, features and much more, it inspired and assured us that this is a business that needs to be created. We feel if executed properly we can reach a large market of people in need of an easier way to engage in the social culture of cinema. Our features will make us incredibly qualified to succeed. This paired with attention to detail and team experience will make us set for success in the Congo-Kinshasa. Our mission is to take care of every funder, supporter and customer with the upmost respect and care. We feel this will be the key to our growth. 

About Us 

Our company is passionate with creating a cinema, not only for film but also for humanity, this cinema is meant to bring awareness and hope to people going through tough times. Film has been a tried and true way to bring an issue to the masses. Films also provide a sense of understanding that not many other media outlets can do. Our goal is to stay dedicated to our mission of perseverance and courage because we know our society will benefit greatly! Help us make this cinema a reality and let’s start spreading the word today! 

Our Team

During a trip in Congo-Kinshasa, Steve Munga, belgo-congolese and cinema enthusiast, realized that there are no movie theater in DRC like we know it in Occident. So he've decided to launch the 1st HD and instant cinema in Kinshasa. To make it possible, he has put together a rocket team !

  • Natacha Ruiz, our marketer, probably the best person to know how to reach our target audience. She selects the public to identify and adapt the media and messages to each of them. 
  • Tarik Lizani, our lawyer, he knows the rules; he makes the best deal in paper for all partners. Everyone wins with Cinekin.
  • Laura Mandret, our metric girl, she gives the best insight of the Congolese market. She analyzes and prepares field and satisfaction surveys to offer the best possible service 
  • And Steve Munga, the businessman and founder, he closes the deals, in only one week he received "all the go" from the biggest distributors in the world

Risks and challenges

To launch this cinema, we need the best equipment:
- High-definition projectors
- Surround sound systems

To get this equipment we need at least €10 000 to complete the 95% of the budget we have already gathered.

1. High Definitions Projectors:
We will work with Barco projector 2K well known for their quality. If we received more money, we will be able to buy a better equipment Barco 4k ultra hd. Cinekin could be the only one Cinema in Central Africa to have this quality.

2. Surround Sound Systems:

What will be Cinema without an amazing sound? It’s just as important to the cinema experience as the big screen. If all goes according to plan, we'll have a dolby surroung sound install in the cinema for December.
