Call for African filmmakers

"One Fine Day Film Workshops": young filmmakers from Africa telling their story. The DW Akademie joint project is now accepting applications for the workshop beginning September 2013 in Kenya.

It was a moving experience when Tosh Gitonga last fall premiered his first feature film "Nairobi Half Life" in Berlin. The packed audience gave Gitonga a lengthy round of applause. The film has been running in Kenya for half a year and is considered to be Kenya's most successful film ever.

"Nairobi Half Life" is the result of the first "One Fine Day Film Workshop" held in 2010. Another film, "Something Necessary", resulted from the second workshop and recently started showing in Nairobi. The film is touring Germany this February and will be shown in several cities.

Africa's film industry is attracting international interest thanks to the joint project run by ONE FINE DAY FILMS and DW Akademie. The first workshop and ensuing film production phase has already drawn attention to many talented African filmmakers.

The fourth workshop gets underway in Kenya this September. Starting now, African directors, camera operators, editors, scriptwriters, sound engineers and production designers can apply for this intense two-week workshop.

The workshop is closely adapted to the needs of today's African film enthusiasts and is aimed at professionalizing the craft of filmmaking. International filmmakers will train and guide a select group of up-and-coming talents involved in various aspects of filmmaking. Participants will then go on to shoot and produce their own film.

Participants will not only learn how to develop their ideas and put them into practice but will also receive support in how to attract African and international film markets.

Creating a group setting where budding filmmakers can exchange experiences and share a common goal also sustains their enthusiasm over the long run.

The One Fine Day Film workshops are a joint project by DW Akademie, ONE FINE DAY FILMS and GINGER INK. The project is supported by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, the Film und Medienstiftung NRW, the Goethe-Institut Kenya and ARRI Film & TV Services.

Application deadline: May 1, 2013
Workshop: September 2 - 13, 2013
