Unilever and MOFILM have partnered up to create an amazing opportunity for African filmmakers that you can apply for today. Together they are launching the Academy for African Filmmakers (AAF), an immersive three-day exploration of storytelling through film, that is focused on equipping you with high-level strategic insights and practical tools to help you develop your filmmaking skills and career.
AAF is a completely free opportunity that will help young African talent to develop their filmmaking skills while working on real, live, Unilever briefs. Any African citizen, between the age of 18 and 30, with a passion for film and story telling can be part of it.
The mission of AAF is to empower, nurture and celebrate African filmmaking talent, developing your expertise by working on actual briefs. There will be also potential further funding to help create work as well as the possibility of seeing their finished films broadcast. There is also the possibility for funding for further study through a scholarship programme.
AAF will be an intensive course, created and delivered by expert tutors with experience of the African filmmaking industry. The sessions of the Academy will take place in Nigeria, Kenya and South Africa during December 2014. The curriculum will cover several aspects of filmmaker theory and practice, with a focus on developing story telling skills.
Spaces are limited so make sure you get your application in ahead of the deadline 31st October 2014.
