Namib Insider! offers commentary, critique, news and original writing on the Namibian film, theatre and music industry.

Namib Insider! was founded in June 2018 by journalist, theatremaker and cinephile Donald ‘Zuleit’ Matthys with the aim of bringing news and information on the best film and theatre works in Namibian onto one platform. The website has grown since and strives to continue making access to relevant news and information easier for fellow film and theatre enthusiasts.
