The Durban FilmMart also facilitates networking opportunities in order for African and international filmmakers to form alliances for future collaborations. The Durban FilmMart aims to: Raise the visibility of projects from the African Continent and create networking opportunities with potential co-producers and other industry partners; Facilitate funding for promising projects and accelerate financing of participating projects through transnational cooperation; Stimulate production of African content and promote international co-production opportunities; Encourage project collaboration between African Filmmakers; And act as a feeder stage for established co-production markets across the globe.

The event runs from July 20 - 23 in Durban, South Africa and of course film industry professionals and media are encouraged to attend as accredited delegates. 

Registration for media and delegate accreditation for the 3rd edition of Durban FilmMart is now open. You have until July 18 to apply.

Unfortunately, S&A won't have a presence there this year, but it's something I'll be looking forward to in coming years; however, you can guarantee that we'll be following all the deal-making that happens. Some new projects can be expected to be revealed.
