The University of Cape Town’s Centre for Film and Media Studies(CFMS) will be hosting four sessions on documentary impact producing at African Film For Impact Festival(AFFIF)  this year on the Zoom platform. The sessions will be offered on the first two mornings of the festival, 4 and 5 November.

The AFIFF webinars form the culmination of UCT’s ‘Impact Series’, offered at virtual film festivals and markets this year. The first, at Encounters South African International Film Festival highlighted the alternative distribution strategies devised by the For Sama team. The second comprised three panel discussions at the Durban Filmmart. 

We look forward to sharing case studies and best practice for documentary film impact producing from around Africa and the rest of the world at AFIFF. See the AIFF programme below.
