NAIROBI, Kenya, Jun 6 – MultiChoice Kenya is calling out for young people passionate in film and television to register for the MultiChoice Talent Factory Academy as the call to entry deadline is only a few days away.

Launched in May 2018 as part of MultiChoice Africa’s ground-breaking corporate shared value (CSV) initiative, there are only two weeks to go until entries for the MTF Academy are closed on June 14, 2019.

The call is open to all emerging filmmakers with either some industry experience or a relevant post-school qualification in filmmaking to apply for this exciting opportunity to hone their television and film production skills under the guidance and mentorship of industry experts Femi Odugbemi (Lagos, Nigeria hub), Njoki Muhoho (Nairobi Kenya hub) and Berry Lwando (Lusaka, Zambia hub).

Interested creatives are required to log in https://cte.multichoicetalentfactory.com/ and register for the MTF Academy entry (separate login details from the portal) and complete the entry process that will take them one step closer to achieving your aspirations in film and television.

This will be the second cohort of the MTF Academy class with the Class of 2018 expected to graduate soon. The Academy presents an opportunity for the students to experience and learn from multiple industry experts and grow your skills and work behind-the-scenes on some of the most popular TV shows in their respective countries, including hit telenovela Selina and top shows Pambio Live and The Turn Up from East Africa, Nigeria’s Tinsel and Battleground, and top music show ZED Top 10 and reality TV show, Date My Family in Zambia.

Furthermore, as a student, they get the opportunity to work directly with some of the most dynamic industry professionals and be a part of the MTF Masterclasses, which are powered by various industry partners as part of the shared value initiative’s three touchpoints alongside the MTF Academy and recently-launched MTF networking portal.

The Class of 2019 will also have the very same opportunities and reap the fruits of the additional ground-breaking partnership between the MTF Academy and the world-renowned New York Film Academy College of Visual & Performing Arts (NYFA), which was announced in April!

The MultiChoice Talent Factory (MTF) is a multi-tiered training programme (Academies, Masterclasses & Portal) designed by MultiChoice Africa to focus on positively impacting the technical and professional value chain in the film and television industry across the continent.
Through the MTF Academies (every year, the academies select 60 talented individuals from across 13 countries to participate in a 12-month academic and practical immersion programme including both theory and hands-on experience in cinematography, editing, audio production and storytelling).
