The 4th edition of Talent Campus Durban will take place from 22-26 July 2011, during the 32nd Durban International Film Festival (21-31 July). Talent Campus Durban is an intensive 5-day program delivered by film professionals to enhance both theoretical and practical approaches to filmmaking. Themed Africa in Motion, the 4th Talent Campus Durban presents a unique platform for African filmmakers to propel their careers through participation in a comprehensive series of seminars, workshops and industry networking activities. This year includes the addition of a Doc Station, where selected documentary projects submitted by accepted talents will be finessed and packaged for presentation within the Durban FilmMart.
40 filmmakers from 20 countries in Africa were selected for the successful 2010 edition, imbuing the Campus with a rich intercultural nature, and sparking exchanges and cooperation that will continue to feed the development of filmmaking across borders of this continent. Talent Campus Durban now invites filmmakers from Africa to apply to participate in the 2011 program, which takes place in Durban, South Africa, over five days. In addition to specific activities offered by the Campus, the selected talents will have the opportunity to attend films and events at the 32nd Durban International Film Festival.
