MultiChoice has announced the call for entry into the second edition of the MultiChoice Talent Factory (MTF) Academy.

The programme, which was launched in May 2018 as part of MultiChoice Africa’s corporate shared value (CSV) initiative and aimed at igniting Africa’s creative industry through TV and film-making has yesterday announced the much-anticipated entry to all emerging filmmakers from 13 African countries.

In a statement made available, the organisers noted that the programme is open to candidates with industry experience or a relevant post-school qualification in film-making to hone their television and film production skills under the guidance and mentorship of industry experts.

According to the organisers, “only 60 students will be selected to be part of the year-long and fully funded programme at three academy hubs located in Southern Africa (Lusaka, Zambia), East Africa (Nairobi, Kenya) and West Africa (Lagos, Nigeria) headed by industry leaders Berry Lwando, NjokiMuhoho and Femi Odugbemi, respectively.
