Shaping the future of African archives | The Restless Pitch | Industry Networking Lunch
The Industry Forum is presented in partnership with the British Council.
Film Africa brings together key industry experts from Africa and the UK to discuss the role and importance of film archives in this all-day forum. At a time when exciting new initiatives are emerging across Africa, we will look at the challenges and opportunities in developing a film archive and explore how these resources can be best utilised by contemporary filmmakers. There will also be an opportunity for attendees to pitch their creative ideas to a panel of experts in The Restless Pitch, our closing session.
