Cape Town International Film Market: Developing the Creative Industries

14/09/2017

14 September, 2017 - 08:00

The Cape Town International Film Market & Festival will take place from October 12th - 21st 2017 at the V & A Waterfront, with a 4-day business to business event focused on increasing collaboration and supporting the efficiency and development of the film industry across Africa.

A unique business focused event, The Cape Town Film Market will see dozens of companies from the film industry participating in 4 days of discussions, networking and workshops all designed to support the growth of the industry, including its affiliate and support services.

The event will include an exhibition space, panel discussions, targeted workshops and networking opportunities that will enable film production companies to interact with the range of affiliate and support industries required for the growth of the sector. Government and associated City support agencies will also be part of this event with a focus on informing and educating producers on issues ranging from funding and tax incentives to permits and location opportunities.

Unlike any other film industry event in the country, the Cape Town Film Market will be a multi-purpose event; a business development and sales opportunity for industry support businesses, a networking event for all industry stakeholders, and an educational platform whereby best practice information will be shared across a range of competencies.

The event is aimed to encourage collaboration between Cape based companies, as well as to forge relationships across the country and the continent. The event will also create the space for networking between businesses, and between business and government in order to drive the growth of the industry, not just regionally, but across the entire sector. Promoting the Cape as the ideal location for international and local shoots will drive tourism, growth of the industry and overall economic improvement for all associated businesses across the industy.

To this end, the event is supported by the City of Cape Town, and Mayor Patricia de Lille has this to say of the event, City of Cape Town Executive Mayor Ms Patricia De Lille adds The City of Cape Town is indeed proud of the Cape Town International Film Market and Festival for making strides in developing the film industry in our city.

We are committed to enhancing this growth by positioning Cape Town as the film hub of Africa and supporting the local film industry as it is a key job creator.

We are determined to work harder so that Cape Town can become even more globally competitive in this important sector by creating an environment that attracts investment and more international film productions.

The Cape Town International Film Market and Festival Marketing Director explains further, the CTIFMF's aim is to establish collaborative opportunities, discover new voices and to broaden their respective landscapes within which they conduct business - and Cape Town is the perfect setting for this. Cape Town is a brand in its own right, and its alignment with the CTIFMF adds a tremendous amount of credibility and stature to the global film industry brand we are in the process of building.

Four days of speakers and discussions will provide invaluable information from industry organisations and government.

All industry stakeholders, including all support services such as logistics, location support and scouting, crew hire, equipment sales and rental, security, catering, transport, post-production, technology and software, and related services are invited to take part by exhibiting their products and services in the official expo space. Further opportunities for these companies will include networking lounges, speaking opportunities, press conferences for product announcements and more.

All industry professionals are also encouraged to attend the event to enjoy the benefits of the full speaker programme, workshop sessions, networking opportunities, and most of all to do business.

The Cape Town Film Market will run alongside the Cape Town International Film Festival that will include film screenings from across the world and a complimentary schedule of discussions workshops with a Pan-African and international focus that delegates can also attend.

All exhibition and registration information can be found on the website: www.filmfestival.capetown or please email Donovan Winterburn: d.winterburn@hotmail.com
