Engage @ DFM, the new Durban FilmMart curated think tank conversations and panels on the future perspectives of the African film industry announced today a series of partnerships with other stakeholders with convergent and vested interests in the continent’s screen sector. Spearheaded by industry programmers Themba Bhebhe, Tiny Mungwe, Russel Hlongwane and Mitchell Harper, the 3-day programme, from July 20th – 22nd, comprises closed-rank moderated think tank discussions in the form of round tables in the mornings followed by public-facing panels in the afternoons. The solution-driven conversations are articulated around three foci: Towards a decolonial model for filmmaking and film; How can key African platforms work together create pan-African collaborations to grow cinema?; Strategies for growing documentary filmmaking and documentary audiences in Africa. Designed as spaces for the sharing and production of knowledge, these discussions will be documented and their findings subsequently redacted into a report.
