STEP Documentary Feature Film Production Workshop
The call to the first edition of “STEP Documentary Feature Film Production Workshop” is now open!
We believe strongly that documentaries matter because they give a better understanding of our past and contemporary world, by its magical power that invites us to see our world from another perspective. LAFF is keen to continue encouraging creative and critical thinking using documentaries as a means of expression. As a matter of fact LAFF 2018 has translated, to Arabic, and published an important book in the field “ La Diversité du Documentaire de Création en Afrique” by Delphe Kifouani and François Fronty.
“STEP Documentary Feature Film Production Workshop” is the second program of Etisal Film Fund. ETISAL’s mission is to help young African filmmakers not only in expressing freely their skills and talents through filmmaking but also in promoting their work globally.
“STEP Documentary Feature Film Production Workshop” will be held in Luxor, Egypt, during the 8th Luxor African Film Festival, from the 15th to the 21 March 2019. STEP will host 5-6 participants. This workshop aims to help the participating projects to reach the maximum of their capacity, enhance the qualities of the project material and clarify its crucial components. This intensive workshop is a unique project development in terms of production, pitching and storytelling addressed only to African professional directors living in Africa, tackling African issues. All costs (air tickets + accommodation) will be covered by LAFF.
The workshop is led by active and internationally acclaimed directors in the field.
