South Africa: Limpopo To Host First-Ever Summit For Young Filmmakers
In response to the call by the President of South Africa to address the menace of unemployment in the country, especially among the youths, the International Film Festival and Inside Education have partnered to host a summit for Young FilmMakers in the Limpopo's provincial capital, Polokwane.
This event which will expose the youths to the various elements of film production aims to sensitise the youths of the Southern African nation to see Film-making as a career choice. The summit would be followed by the Limpopo International Film Festival and Limpopo Film Awards.
Strategic partners for this event include the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) television and radio, National and Provincial Arts and Culture, as well as Brand South Africa. All these partners are in tandem with the theme of the event tagged 'Play Your Part'. Play Your Part is a nationwide movement that was created to celebrate, inspire and empower active citizenship in South Africa.
One of the sponsors, Brand South Africa, is activating this initiative among the youths all over the country.
