The film industry in Kenya has been increasingly identified as a key growth industry with great potential to stimulate economic growth through infrastructural development, tourist attraction, investment and employment creation. Currently the film industry is generating approximately Kshs.6billion in revenue annually against a potential of over KES 40billion. The Kenyan film industry is however plagued by challenges such as less or no capital resources, equipment, production and training facilities and effective distribution and exhibition channels. The developed system will be of great significance to the film enthusiasts as it will help raise awareness and will further translate into a flourishing labour market. Apart from the challenges the Kenyan film industry faces, this documentation also covers the history of the film industry in Kenya, the environment in which it operates and how to make it better. Furthermore, it mentions other related works and the gaps which exist in them. A conceptual framework was drawn to show how the developed system functions. The developed system used iterative waterfall methodology and took the object-oriented approach. This method was suitable because the model provided feedback from every phase to its preceding phases.
