The Sithengi Film and Television Market is looking for strong African and South African writers to enter their feature film scripts into the 2006 Writers Forum (WF). The submission deadline is 26 August 2006 and no extensions will be granted.
WF is open to all writers of full-length feature film scripts/screenplays from South Africa and Africa. Sithengi is looking for well-written, uniquely African stories that are attractive to both a local and international market.
The final selection of projects will be forwarded to invited local and international co-producers, financiers and distributors, prior to Sithengi 2006 (16 to 18 November, Arstcape Cape Town), who are looking for scripts. These industry leaders will then select the projects and writers they would like to meet with and the Sithengi team will set up one-on-one meetings with the interested producers and/or financiers.
The objective of the WF is to ensure that writers will be a€˜matched’ with the correct people a€” those who are genuinely interested in your project with the capacity to come on board with either financing or as a producer. Those selected for the WF have to be registered and fully paid up individual members of Sithengi.
