CREATE: WORKS IN PROGRESS

As the most important element of a market is its content, the CTIFMF has developed a program that aims to elevate the bar for African content in terms of quality and innovation. A maximum of six works in progress will be selected from the African continent to show to international industry experts. Small groups of high calibre decision makers and experts will be hand-picked to view each of the selected films and then give detailed feedback, with the goal of increasing the artistic quality and challenging the core creative teams to think about audiences beyond their own territories.

This initial small group viewing will be followed by a screening of a segment of the same works to a wider audience of invited industry stakeholders comprising of festival programmers, sales companies, distributors and post production financiers. The WIP program will disburse finishing awards to the most promising projects: grading, final sound mix, VFX, online editing, subtitling and DCPs, with the generous support of South African post production facilities such as Priest Post, Rhapsody, The Refinery, The Work Room Audio Post and Post Production South Africa.

We have confirmed attendance from Berlinale’s European Film Market and Berlinale Africa Hub, Tribeca, TIFF, London BFI; international sales companies such as Pyramide International, Flourishing Films, Talent Agents Casarotto and Curtis Brown, MNET, Indigenous Films & Ster Kinekor.

Submissions are invited until 17 August 2018 of fiction or documentary feature length African films in the making.  Filmmakers are requested to submit a password protected Vimeo link of the current edit, a one page synopsis and a one page statement from the director, producer and editor of what they still aim to achieve in the finishing of the film.  Submissions will be assessed by a selection panel.

ENGAGE: AUDIENCE DESIGN

Considering that one of the most challenging and pressing issues for local films is to earn the trust of local audiences that then translates into box office success, the CTIFMF will have a special focus on audience design and development.

A group of marketing and industry professionals with an understanding of these challenges will be selected for a three-day workshop under the guidance of Valeria Richter. This outcome based workshop will equip these professionals with the most current and powerful tools designed to assist films in finding their target market and core following.

At the end of the workshop, each participant will be assigned a project from the WIP and will be expected to deliver an Audience Design Strategy, with a cash prize awarded to the most prolific two of the lot to craft an Audience Design Strategy in collaboration with the Festival Board for CTIFMF 2019.

This workshop is aimed at publicists, marketing and sales professionals, distributors and others within the field and applications are open until August 17th.   

COLLABORATE: ADAPT

CTIFMF’s Adapt program will bring together creatives, producers, and rights holders from the publishing and film industries to explore the possibilities of cinematic book adaptations as well as to develop an economic model and business practice around this that accounts for our African realities.

All market delegates are invited to attend this programme, with a number of toolbox sessions and workshops led by Selina Ukwuoma on translating from book to screen.

Selina is a freelance script consultant who began her career at literary agency Curtis Brown working on a number of adaptations including 2008 BAFTA winner BOY A. She has since gone on to advise on award-winning indie films such as 2014 Teddy winner THE WAY HE LOOKS and this year’s Goyas triumph SUMMER 1993, both Foreign Language Oscars entries from their respective countries.  She has worked closely with Realness as well as Talents Durban over the past 3 years.

Interested professionals are invited to register by 15 September to secure a place.

WORK CAFÉS

The CTIFMF Work Cafés will provide a forum where policy makers from countries in the global South can present and discuss, in detail, best practices in their funding systems and brainstorm ways of implementing these practices in their territories.  The Work Cafés are by invitation only. A press release will be released by the joining parties as an outcome to communicate decisions make during these strategic workshops.

INDUSTRY PROGRAM

The industry program of the CTIFMF will see 4 days of panel discussions, keynote speeches  and workshops with participation from experts from South Africa, the rest of the continent, and across the globe.  There will be a variety of relevant topics covered in constructive dialogues that foster the development of a cohesive and growing film industry. These topics include capacity building and skills development, Virtual Reality, Festival Strategies, Curatorship, Financing, Performance, Production Design, Blockchain and Cryptocurrency and more.
