Young African Filmmakers. Luxor African Film Festival (LAFF)’s ETISAL fund launches a program to develop long narratives.
As champion of young African filmmakers, Luxor African Film Festival (LAFF) will present five feature films and short documentaries by young filmmakers from Ethiopia, Togo, Rwanda, Cote d’Ivoire and Egypt. The five films were sponsored by LAFF in 2014, and will be presented at its fourth edition in March 2015.
LAFF’s ETISAL Fund also announces the launch of STEP (Space To Establish Partnership) as its Second Program for its 2015 edition.
Azza Elhosseiny, director of ETISAL, announces that the program is to support the development of long narratives in their pre-production phase while addressing specifically the first or second work of young African filmmakers.
A committee including filmmakers, scriptwriters, producers and film critics, will select the projects to which funds will be provided in the range of $5,000 to $8,000.
The winners will be invited to Luxor for a five-day script development workshop conducted under the supervision of cinema experts from Africa and Europe.
