The National Film and Video Foundation call for emerging Black Filmmakers

Call for Emerging Black Filmmakers to submit proposals

The National Film and Video Foundation (NFVF) an Agency of the Department of Arts and Culture and the Industrial Development Corporation (IDC) are inviting emerging black filmmakers to submit proposals for consideration under the Emerging Black Filmmakers Transformation Fund (EBFTF). Launched in 2014, the EBFTF provides financial, marketing and other related support to emerging black filmmakers. The fund has been designed for Black directors who have released fewer than five feature films.

Subsequent to the launch last year, a call was made to South African black filmmakers to apply for this fund. The call was aimed at identifying a pilot film project that would be used to refine the EBFTF process from selection through to contracting and releasing of the film.

The NFVF and the IDC are proud to announce that after vigorous selection and consultation process, Finders Keepers, a film directed by Maynard Kraak, was selected as the pilot project. The film is currently in post-production.

Closing date 14 October 2015
