IEFTA to host during EFM a panel focused on building relations between filmmakers and foundations


The International Emerging Film Talent Association (IEFTA), a Monaco based not for profit organization working with filmmakers from emerging economies, will partner for the second year in the “Berlinale Africa Hub,” an initiative of the European Film Market (EFM). Located in the Marriott Hotel Berlin, the Africa Hub provides an international forum for communication and networking for African filmmakers and creatives with distributors, buyers and other film professionals, as well as for filmmakers who are active on the continent, in particular in its sub-Saharan regions.

IEFTA will sponsor panel discussions, speed dating sessions, support for Sudanese & Ethiopian popups and a reception for African Hub Participants. The Ethiopian pop-up features several films made by IEFTA alums, including Moges Tafesse’s, Enchained (2019), which is currently in US and EU theatrical release. 


IEFTA is also underwriting a panel focused on building relations between filmmakers and foundations, using film to reach a target audience. That panel is scheduled for Monday 24 February, from 15:30-16:30 and called, “Roadmaps: Forging New Synergies for Film Production with Foundations: ‘Edutainment.’” Unfortunately, works commissioned by foundations – and not just in Africa – are too often overlooked by cinephiles on the festival circuit.  Participating in the panel will be Jarreth Merz, from Ghana’s Urban Republic; as well as an alumni of our GFE program, Tamara Dawit (Egypt); Keith Shiri, a leading international festival programmer and consultant; and long-time IEFTA mentor, UNHCR veteran and Executive Producer of Beyond the Raging Sea, Ragnhild Ek. Moderated by Theresa Hill (Acquisitions Manager, South Africa)


Last year, IEFTA supported Ethiopia’s first major presence in the Berlinale with the panel discussion, Spotlight: Ethiopia’s Emerging Film Industry. This year, IEFTA will be supporting the Africa Hub Talks Series, Spotlight: Sudan’s Awakening as a Film Industry Player - Sunday, 23 February, 15:30-16:30. Sudan has emerged as an up-and-coming African film market, with talented filmmakers, storytellers and key-players focused on making their mark on the industry and the world. This session will explore Sudan’s emergence as an exciting content-creator, review new initiatives and explore opportunities for international collaboration. Panelists include: Mohamed Awad Farah (Sudanese Filmmaking Association); Talal Afifi (Sudan Independent Film Festival); Sara Abbas Karoum (Sudanese Filmmaking Association); and moderated by Prudence Kolong (Consultant, Sweden).
