How To Enter The #MultiChoiceTalentFactory & Harness Your Filmmaking Creativity !

Calling all aspiring film directors, DOPs, sound guys, and scriptwriters!

If you frame your world through camera angles, narrate reality like a movie script, and edit the montage of your life like a film director, you might just be what the MultiChoice Talent Factory is looking for! MultiChoice Africa is calling all aspiring film directors, DOPs, sound guys, and scriptwriters to help ignite Africa’s creative industries.

Launched in May in honour of Africa Month, the MultiChoice Talent Factory (MTF) is focused on recruiting aspiring African talent in areas of cinematography, film editing, audio production and storytelling. Sixty talented students from 13 African countries will get the chance to hone their film and television production skills alongside industry greats on DStv channels such as the M-Net channels.

MultiChoice Talent Factory graduates will also get to showcase their portfolio of work on the MTF Portal – a database for film professionals across the continent, where they can access job opportunities, keep up to date with industry news, and expand their network. The entry is open to Creatives who have studied or have experience in film, drama, production, direction, engineering, cinematography.
