Durban FilmMart

Now in its 5th year, the Durban FilmMart, a partnership project with the Durban Film Office and the Durban International Film Festival, and supported by the City of Durban, is a film finance and co-production market presented in three strands - Finance Forum, Master Classes and the Africa in Focus seminars. 20 selected African projects (including 10 fiction features and 10 documentaries) will have an opportunity to hold one-on-one meetings with potential financiers, co-producers and distributors in the Finance Forum.

All projects will also have an opportunity to pitch their projects to a panel of international commissioning editors and financiers in the African Pitch, a structured pitching forum of the market. The DFM master class and networking programme is open to registered delegates only. For more information, go to www.durbanfilmmart.com.
