Written by: FFT Webmaster | July 1st, 2011

IDFA, the powerhouse International Documentary Festival Amsterdam, has announced a new initiative with the Durban FilmMart in South Africa. This year, for the first time, ten documentary projects have been selected to be pitched for a panel of African and non-African commissioning editors and funds. The selected filmmakers and producers will get a crash course in co-producing with African organizations and participate in hands-on training sessions led by acclaimed documentary professionals preparing them for their pitch and follow up meetings with potential national and international financiers. The 2nd Durban FilmMart will take place from July 22 to 25 as part of the 32nd edition of the Durban International Film Festival. IDFA will take place in Amsterdam from November 16 to 27.
