CTIFMF’s Adapt programme will bring together creatives and producers 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.
Register on our website before 15 September 2018 to secure your place. In order to register, participants need to be in possession of a market badge. Kindly note that registering does not guarantee participation in the program.
We will offer a number of toolbox sessions and workshops led by Selina Ukwuoma on translating from book to screen. She is no newcomer to South Africa as she has been working closely with Realness as well as Talents Durban over the past 3 years. 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 indies such as 2014 Teddy winner THE WAY HE LOOKS and this year’s Goyas triumph SUMMER 1993.
As well as consulting for production companies and designing and running development initiatives with various organisations, Selina teaches screenwriting at the UK’s National Film and Television School and is currently developing a course on adaptation. Selina also leads workshops on pitching at various film festivals worldwide including the Berlinale.
