The EThekwini Municipality’s Durban Film Office have for over the past three years launched a Micro-budget Film and Development Fund Programme aiming to support local emerging and intermediate filmmakers and encourage the production of local content in order to stimulate the local film industry.

These programmes also focus on filmmakers who need to develop projects for local and international investors, markets and audiences.

The Durban Film Office is kick-starting its 2017/2018 next round of submissions for Micro Budget Film that offers up to R150,000.00 p/a to five Feature Film Projects as well as the Development Fund that offers R250,000,00 p/a to two Projects on development.

All emerging and intermediate EThekwini filmmakers are urged to attend the briefing workshop for the next call out of submissions for 2017/18 grant funds.

The briefing workshop will take place on May 24 at 09h00 at the Botanical Gardens Visitors Complex.
