The 30th Durban International Film Festival (23 July – 2 August 2009) is proud to announce the 2nd edition of Talent Campus Durban from 24 – 28 July 2009, an intensive 5-day programme of workshops and seminars delivered by film professionals to enhance both theoretical and practical approaches to filmmaking. The 2nd Talent Campus Durban theme Roots and Shoots: Creating a New African Cinema will focus activities towards the development of new partnerships between African filmmakers.

Talent Campus Durban invites filmmakers from Africa to apply to participate in these workshops and seminars, which take place in Durban, South Africa, over five days. In addition to specific activities offered by the Campus, the selected talents will have the opportunity to attend films and events at the 30th Durban International Film Festival.


Deadline for application was: 16 March 2009

Although many applied and could have been selected the choice was narrowed down to the following. It is hoped that those who applied and didnt get in this year will try again. And that they also apply to the Berlinale Talent Campus.
