The Accra Indie Filmfest has partnered with Mediathirsty Productions based in the UK for this year’s edition of AiF FilmArt and is supported by the British Council. The Accra Indie Filmfest and Mediathirsty Productions partnership will organize a workshop to give 30 underrepresented emerging screenwriters in the UK the opportunity to collaborate with young filmmaking teams in Ghana. This program is designed to foster cultural and experiential exchanges between Ghana and the UK and birth new narratives.
Screenwriting workshop will be held in the UK to be facilitated by Mediathirsty Productions while the Filmmaking Workshop will be held in Ghana and facilitated by Accra Indie Filmfest (AiF). At the end of the program, two short films will be produced and premiered as part of Accra Indie Filmfest 2022 to a live audience. These films would also be submitted to other international film festivals to increase their visibility beyond Accra Indie Filmfest.
Screenwriting workshop participation opens on 24th January 2022 to young and emerging screenwriters based in the UK.
Filmmaking workshop participation opens in March to young and emerging filmmakers based in Ghana occupying production roles including; directing, producing, editing, cinematography and sound design.
