DURBAN

  • Durban FilmMart
  • Durban International Film Festival
  • Ambassade de France en Afrique du Sud

Africa’s premier film finance and co-production forum, The Durban FilmMart, is a film industry development initiative funded by the City of Durban and founded by the Durban Film Office and the Durban International Film Festival.

Celebrating its 11 year of building international partnerships and furthering the development and production of cinema in the African Continent, the Durban FilmMart welcomes back its budding partnership with Produire au Sud/the Festival des 3 Continents, Nantes, in the hope of establishing a partnership that creates a programme around story development over the next three years: the Script Studio.

The Script Studio is offering an annual partnership between both festivals, that provides two different exchanges, which alternately will take place in Durban in July and in Nantes in November.

JUMPSTART in Durban

Jumpstart is an incubator programme presented by the Durban FilmMart in partnership with Produire au Sud to introduce 6 emerging directors from Durban and Kwazulu Natal region to project packaging for the international market. Both consultants will introduce the emerging directors to important techniques & tools surrounding scriptwriting and storytelling.

DFM in Nantes

On the other hand, the Nantes Produire au Sud workshop 2020 will welcome one film project, which was running the DFM. The producer and director of the film project are offered the opportunity to run the Produire au Sud workshop week along with the others selected film projects.

Furthermore, this year’s partnership is supported by the French Embassy in South Africa, which has been instrumental in finalising the programme and providing financial support for the key experts. The objective is to strengthen the links between France and South Africa in the film industry and create opportunities for professions in both countries.
