The International Emerging Film Talent Association (IEFTA) will participate in the “Berlinale Africa Hub”







Encouraging Collaboration with Emerging Filmmakers


Ethiopia’s Emerging Film Industry


The International Emerging Film Talent Association (IEFTA), a Monaco based not for profit organization working with filmmakers from emerging economies, will participate in the  “Berlinale Africa Hub,” an initiative of the European Film Market (EFM), providing an international forum for communication and networking for African filmmakers and creatives, as well as for filmmakers who are active on the continent, in particular in its sub-Saharan regions.


On 12 February, at the Africa Hub, IEFTA will present Encouraging Collaboration with Emerging Filmmakers, to discusses how they support talent in emerging markets, in particular Ethiopia, and how international film festivals, local filmmakers and organisations prosper within this collaboration. Time: 11:30 - 12:00


Later that afternoon, IEFTA supports the panel discussion Spotlight: Ethiopia’s Emerging Film Industry, a discussion on the emerging film industry in Ethiopia, moderated by Martha Fessehatzion and featuring IEFTA ambassadors Beza Hailu Lemma and Henok Mebratu. Time: 15:30 - 16:30

These panels will be followed by a networking cocktail hour hosted by IEFTA. Time 17:00-18:00.


The “Berlinale Africa Hub” places a spotlight in particular on the highly individual development of the African film industry, which – sparked by technological change – has created spaces for new and often local ideas, projects and innovations that represent the foundation for the African film industry of the future. The “Berlinale Africa Hub” is an initiative of the European Film Market (EFM) realized in co-operation with the World Cinema Fund, with Berlinale Talents, and with the Berlinale Co-Production Market.


Among the missions of IEFTA, a Monaco-based, non-profit, non-governmental organisation, is to discover and promote emerging cinema talent from around the world, encourage dialogue between filmmakers, promote cultural diversity and international understanding, and engage the art of cinema. Focusing on the world’s developing regions, IEFTA provides opportunity and education to those with little to no access to resources for cinematic expression.
