The Cape Town International Film Market and Festival will emphasize the diversity of the South African and African film industries.

This year’s theme is “Create, Collaborate, Celebrate.” The four-day event will offer master classes, panel discussions, and numerous opportunities for networking for filmmakers and industry professionals. The conference portion of the market will explore relevant issues as well as emerging technologies, with some sessions focusing on virtual reality, augmented reality, and crypto currencies.

Elias Ribeiro, market director, remarked, “We urge everyone with an interest in the growth of the South African and African film industries to take part in these events and reap the real rewards that will come from these informative sessions and truly remarkable networking opportunities.”
