    Southern African International Film and Television Market 1997
    Sender: owner-african-cinema-conference
    Precedence: bulk


    In line with its objectives to create a significant global profile for
    product completed on the African continent, and a platform for
    potential sales and distribution, the Southern African International
    Film & Television Market puts its strength and resources behind
    filmmakers on the continent by ensuring AFRICAN FOCUS is a highlight
    of the Market.

    >From experience of the 1996 Market it became clear that because we are
    a developing Market, international buyers are not necessarily aware of
    the selection, originality and quality of programming and features we
    have to offer. AFRICAN FOCUS provides an opportunity for you to enter
    your product in this segment - which is integral to creating a strong
    identity for our films.

    How Does It Work?

    If you are a filmmaker from the African Continent and have already
    reserved Market Screenings which will be held at the Labia Theatre for
    35mm, 16mm and Video Projection - your title will appear on the Market
    Screening Schedule - highlighted as an "AFRICAN FOCUS" entry. If you
    have not, or do not wish to book a screening in the above-mentioned
    formats, you are invited to complete the attached AFRICAN FOCUS
    Registration Form and your product (in VHS cassette format) will be
    available for viewing at the AFRICAN FOCUS stand, situated at the
    KwaNhlangano Stand at the Market Venue, where the following services
    will be available:

    *African Focus Catalogue in which all programs and titles will be
    indexed by genre
    *African Focus Library of VHS cassettes.
    *Screening Booths to screen Product on request by buyers visiting the
    KwaNhlangano Stand.
    *Co-ordinators to facilitate and process queries from buyers or
    possible co- production partners, and put these parties in touch
    with each other.
    *A global mail shot issued by the Market Organisers to all Market
    delegates two weeks prior to the Market informing them of African
    Focus and KwaNhlangano.
    *Listing in the Official Market Guide - highlighting an African Focus

    >From the entries that are received, 5 x 35mm Titles will be selected
    by a Selection Committee for evening Premiere Screenings at the Labia
    Theatre. In order to qualify for consideration in this selection, the
    films must meet the following criteria:

    * The film must be at least 70 mins in Length, and must be
    * Principal Photography no earlier than 1996.
    * The film must have been made on the African Continent.
