The National Film and Video Foundation (NFVF) and the National Centre for Cinema (CNC) in France, in conjunction with the French Embassy in South Africa, are organising a two-day co-production workshop between the two countries. The workshop will be held in Paris during the week of 27 March 2017.
This workshop is part of the on-going collaboration between these institutions to strengthen the cooperation in the film industry between France and South Africa, and to encourage co-productions within the framework of the exisiting co-production treaty.
This is the second such workshop hosted by these institutions. The first one was held in Durban, South Africa, in 2012.
The workshop in Paris specifically aims to create a platform for South African filmmakers/producers with developed feature film projects to meet with their fellow French producers, and find potential partners with a view to co-produce their projects.

- Previous industry experience is required. The director and producer must have experience in their respective role (no less than one feature-film for the producer, at least two shorts for the director).
