TALENT CAMPUS DURBAN (article first published : 2008-01-25)

The 29th Durban International Film Festival taking place from July 23 to August 3 has announced the first edition of Talent Campus Durban held in co-operation with the Berlinale Talent Campus from July 25 to 29.

Talent Campus Durban is an intensive five-day programme of workshops and seminars delivered by film professionals and academics. Filmmakers will benefit from both theoretical and practical approaches that will enhance their cinematographic experience. The Talent Campus Durban theme Producing African Cinema for a New World will focus the activities towards the development of new projects and ideas.

In February each year, the Berlin International Film Festival organises the Berlinale Talent Campus, which brings together hundreds of young filmmakers from all over the world. Since 2003, Talent Campus events have been held in Argentina, Bosnia and Herzegovina, India, South Africa and Ukraine.

Talent Campus Durban invites young filmmakers from Africa to apply to participate in these workshops and seminars which take place in Durban over five days. In addition to specific activities offered by the Campus, the selected talents will have the opportunity to attend films and events at the 29th Durban International Film Festival.

Deadline for application is March 17. Full Rules and Regulations can be downloaded from www.cca.ukzn.ac.za/talent2008.htm
