The American Film Market (AFM), running November 5-12 in Santa Monica, has announced the speakers for its "African Co-Productions: The Possibilities and the Challenges" roundtable.

Taking place between on Sunday, November 9th, from 4pm - 5:30pm, the round-table will focus on the development and promotion of the African film industry through co-production. The round-table will bring together stakeholders who have an interest in films produced in Africa with cross-cultural appeal, thereby initiating business opportunities that can impact the untapped potential of the African film industry.

The following speakers have been confirmed to participate:

“Africa’s film industry is growing at a rapid pace. Coupled with its high rate of urbanization, the dual growth of more quality films and an expanding audience is creating opportunities for producers in Africa and around the world. AFM is the perfect platform to connect Africa with the global production community,” said AFM Managing Director Jonathan Wolf.
