Launched in May 2018 as part of MultiChoice Africa’s ground-breaking corporate shared value (CSV) initiative aimed at igniting Africa’s creative industry through TV and filmmaking, the MTF Academy officially announced the much-anticipated Call to Entry to all emerging filmmakers from 13 African countries with either some industry experience or a relevant post-school qualification in filmmaking to apply for this exciting opportunity.

Successful applicants will get the chance to hone their television and film production skills under the guidance and mentorship of industry experts.

Only 60 students will be selected to be part of the sought-after year-long and fully-funded programme at three academy hubs located in Southern Africa (Lusaka, Zambia), East Africa (Nairobi, Kenya) and West Africa (Lagos, Nigeria) headed by industry leaders Berry Lwando, Njoki Muhoho and Femi Odugbemi, respectively.

As part of the programme, young filmmakers are provided with training and hands-on experience in the film industry, with a focus on storytelling, production, audio and directing and other key areas. The academies also provide students with an opportunity to learn directly from well-known leading industry experts, work on live sets of local TV productions and create original content that will be aired on various local M-Net channels across the MultiChoice platforms – DStv, GOtv and Showmax.

In Nigeria, the students cut their teeth on the thrilling series Battleground, The Johnsons, Tinsel and Flatmates, which is a situational comedy, whilst in Zambia, the class worked on the reality show, Date My Family, Top ZED music show and the drama series Chintelelwe. The students also had the opportunity to gain hands-on experience on SuperSport shows and pitched their final-semester film projects to MultiChoice channel executives.

And in March, the initiative rolled out the MTF Portal, www.multichoicetalentfactory.com, an interactive online destination, which brings talent and opportunities together under one platform for Africa’s creatives to connect and network with each other.

To apply for the MTF Academy applicants are required to visit www.multichoicetalentfactory.com  before June 14, 2019 and follow the steps to enter.
