R100m sup­port for black film-mak­ers

The Star Early Edition - - BUSINESS REPORT -

THE DEPART­MENT of Trade and In­dus­try (dti) would have spent R100 mil­lion to sup­port emerg­ing black film-mak­ers through the SA Emerg­ing Black Film­mak­ers In­cen­tive by the end of March next year. This was an­nounced by the direc­tor of film pro­duc­tion at the dti, Nelly Molokoane, at the Emerg­ing Black Film­mak­ers Work­shop at the Dur­ban In­ter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val. The work­shop was tar­geted at emerg­ing film pro­duc­ers who wanted to ac­cess the in­cen­tives scheme. Ac­cord­ing to Molokoane, since its launch, the in­cen­tive scheme had man­aged to sup­port 40 projects of emerg­ing film-mak­ers as part of the R100m bud­get. – Staff Re­porter
