The 2018 edition of the Cape Town International Film Market and Festival will take place from 9 to 19 October 2018 at venues across the V & A Waterfront in Cape Town.
For film professionals, an expanded and content-focused Market and industry programme will run from 10 to 13 October, aimed at inclusive and constructive engagements that foster the development of quality content and support the growth of a cohesive African film industry.
Highlights include a Works in Progress programme, a Book Adaptations programme and an Audience Development workshop as well as Work Cafés, keynote speeches, panel discussions and networking opportunities.
Throughout the four days a range of discussions will cover topics including capacity building and skills development, virtual reality, festival strategies, curatorship, financing, blockchain and cryptocurrency, amongst others.
Delegate registration is now open, and we encourage everyone to register now, ahead of the 12 September deadline to be included on the delegate book to be distributed at the event. The complete industry programme will be announced on 15 September 2018.
The CTIFM&F Works in Progress programme has also extended its deadline for entries to Friday, 17 August. This programme will see six works viewed and evaluated by high calibre decision makers and experts, with the goal of increasing the artistic quality and challenging the core creative teams to think about audiences beyond their own territories.

The CTIFM&F expo will run alongside the Market programme from 10 to 13 October at the North Wharf Harbour, a prime location in the V&A Waterfront with a natural flow of attendees from the various CTIFM&F venues.
Industry stakeholders, film-related agencies, governmental agencies and production service companies such as logistics, location support and scouting, crew agencies, gear sales and rental, security, catering, transport, post-production, technology and software, are invited to take part by exhibiting their products and services in the official expo space. Further opportunities for these companies include networking lounges, speaking opportunities, press conferences for product announcements and more.

To make this year’s revamped Market programme and expo as accessible to film industry professionals, the CTIFM&F has made Market badges as affordable as possible. Market director Elias Ribeiro explains further, “We want to see as many industry professionals as possible taking part in this year’s programme, and we also want to ensure that delegates experience the real value that the programme presents. The full Market pass is the ideal way for both seasoned professionals and those just starting out in the industry to benefit from the skills sharing, networking, and other opportunities that will be part of the programme.”
