African Film Development Foundation calls for country represetatives

21 Jan 2013 10:31
The African Film Development Foundation, established in May 2012 in response to the need to promote ventures by Africans in the film industry and support stakeholders and organisations that make the films, seeks country representatives.
The motivation was spawned by the lack of accessible funding and resource structure that should help African filmmakers realise true African stories from Africa's perspective. It will be a convergence of education, skills and arenas to expose the talented, budding and seasoned Africans in the business of film.

African Film Development Foundation will also enable a global collection and exhibition of African films in all genres at events and special seasons to create dynamism for African film business by engaging various and diverse audiences throughout and beyond Africa.

This year, the African Film Development Foundation seeks to implement several film funding and educational programs across the continent. To that effect, the Foundation seeks country representatives from: Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Namibia, Morocco, South Sudan, Zimbabwe, Chad, Mozambique, Angola, Burundi, Madagascar, Burkina Faso, Togo and Rwanda.
