MultiChoice has launched a web portal for its Talent Factory, a pan-African networking platform that brings together talent to access opportunities and connect with like minds.
Following the launch of the MTF Academies and MTF Masterclasses, the new portal is an attempt to ignite Africa’s creative industries by seeking all film and TV creatives to be part of this new network.
The portal is a film and television digital marketplace that reveals the hidden talents of directors, cinematographers, scriptwriters, editors, actors, sound specialists and producers.
“With increasing cross-continental coverage, filmmakers are looking for networks beyond their own borders,” said Cheryl Uys-Allie, director of the MultiChoice Talent Factory (MTF).
“As a producer in Nigeria, it is exciting to know it is possible to coproduce in Angola, for example, with access to local talent and production partners. The portal is made for mobile and is therefore accessible to any filmmaker anywhere in the world.”
MultiChoice group executive for corporate affairs Joe Heshu said: “As Africa’s leading storyteller, we play a significant role in bringing the local television and film production industry to life across the continent and the portal is an important extension of our commitment to igniting Africa’s creative industries to find each other and continue making great content.”
The MTF is a shared-value initiative that provides a platform for the creative industries to connect, find one another, stay in touch and make films. For more details, click here
