The African Film industry is set for a revolution through filmmaking, as Footprints Film foundation and High Definition Film Academy (HDFA) launches the 6th edition of its Script2ScreenAfrica filmmaking and Acting Reality TV project, with the theme “Film as a catalyst for revolution!”
In a time when our continent is overwhelmed with multiple social ills; corruption, injustice, inequality, lack of quality education, lack of power supply, poverty, and insecurity, we seek to train filmmakers with a vision to tell stories that will tackle some of the continent’s most pressing issues head-on, educate viewers while entertaining them, and hopefully pique effective action once the screen’s glow diminishes. Filmmakers who understand that film is an ideal catalyst for change, and linking a powerful story with a highly developed activist campaign could move public opinion and start a revolution.
Script to Screen Africa will select 60 finalists from auditions across 3 continents and 7 countries including Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, South Africa, US, UK, and Canada (for Africans in diaspora), into the Reality TV House. The 60 finalist will be trained and mentored by veteran filmmakers and actors, and then engaged in the production of short films on varying social justice related topics.
Past guest facilitators to our Script to Screen training project includes filmmakers and Star Actors such as Teco Benson, Nse Ikpe Etim, Oc Ukeje, Kalu Ikeagwu, Blossom Chukwujekwu, and Bright Wonder Obasi. Expected Facilitators/Mentor for our 2017 edition, in addition to the above listed, includes: Stella Damasus, Tope Oshin, Richard Mofe Damijo, Joke Silva, Niyi Akimolayan, Majid Michel, C.J Obasi, Kate Henshaw, and a host of Others.
