The African Media Initiative (AMI) and the Pan African Federation of Filmmakers (FEPACI) have partnered to support the development of high quality audio visual and film content in the continent’s film industry. The two organisations will work together to create the conditions for the production of compelling African stories which meet international film standards. AMI and FEPACI will also work with regional organisations and national governments in developing conducive legislative and policy environments which will drive the industry’s success and promote cross-border collaborations on production and post-production.[…]
