Cape Town International Film Market & Festival
The Cape Town International Film Market & Festival will take place 12–21 October 2017 at the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town, with a four-day B2B event focused on increasing collaboration and supporting the efficiency and development of the film industry across Africa.
The Cape Town Film Market expects to see dozens of companies from the film industry participating in these four 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.
The film market is intended to be a multipurpose 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. 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. 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 may also attend.
