ART AND CULTURE IN TIMES OF COVID-19 – FILMMAKING IN AFRICA DURING THE PANDEMIC

SAT 21 NOV 13.00


DISCUSSION | ONLINE
IN COOPERATION WITH WELTFILME e. V.



How does the pandemic affect cultural- and filmproductions in African countries in concrete terms? How and where do filmmakers network with each other when festivals and exchange programs disappear? How is the respective government dealing with the effects on society and culture? Is there governmental/international support?

Five African filmmakers and festival directors from different countries have described their current situation in Corona statements. Young filmmakers from the African countries, who are able to further their education in media projects of Weltfilme e.V. on site, have processed their view of the pandemic in short films. German initiatives, NGO’s and filmmakers have tried to maintain their offers in the African countries during the pandemic.

In cooperation with Weltfilme e.V., filmmakers and festival directors discuss questions on the topic.

With statements from: Dora Bouchoucha (producer, Tunisia); Fatou Kiné Sène, (film critic, Senegal); Laza (filmmaker and festival director Rencontres du Film Court Madagascar); Kivu Ruhorahoza (filmmaker, Rwanda); Ousmane Boundaoné (managing director Ouaga Film Lab, Burkina Faso)
