VIDI calls for local content submissions


VIDI has called on both professional and amateur producers of local video content
to submit their work via the VIDI website for possible inclusion in the video-on-demand (VOD) service’s South African content selection. VIDI, which launched
commercially last year, is emerging as a well-known supporter of South African
video content.

Interested contributors are able to submit their video content via the VIDI website. The videos will be reviewed by
the VIDI local content team who will decide on its suitability for posting on the
streaming video site. Formal commercial contract terms will then be proposed by
VIDI and, if accepted, the content will be added to the VIDI site.

“This is a golden opportunity for producers of South African content to access a
well-visited platform on which to showcase their talents. We’re hoping the next
generation of content producers who are currently amateurs will see this as that big
opportunity to take them to the next level,” said Janene Matsukis, VIDI

VIDI is a sponsor of the Independent Mzansi Short Film Festival (IMSFF), a four-day
short film celebration. IMSFF 2015 screened some 20 hours of short films from up-and-coming directors and producers in South Africa during June 2014. VIDI is also
committed to bringing the problem of illegal content downloads via the web to the
fore and has recently launched a publicity campaign aimed at encouraging South
African web users to ‘keep it local and legal’.
