UNESCO acts to promote the development of the African Film Industry



UNESCO celebrates African cinema with the presentation of its new report entitled The African Film Industry: Trends, Challenges and Opportunities for Growth, which presents the first complete mapping of the film and audiovisual industries in 54 countries of the continent.

The round-table offers the opportunity to discuss the key challenges facing the African cinema industry today, while looking to the concrete initiatives underway, especially for youth and preservation of African Film heritage, in particular:

– The “UNESCO/Nara residency for young African female filmmakers”, a training and mentoring project for young African women filmmakers, led by international acclaimed film director Ms Naomi Kawase
– The SENTOO program, which brings together the National Film Centers of seven African countries and combines writing residencies, production and co-production workshops and assistance for the development of film projects
– The African Film Heritage Project (AFHP) that aims to preserve classic African films. A joint initiative between the Film Foundation, Cineteca di Bologna and the Pan African Federation of Filmmakers (FEPACI).
