Africa’s Nature, Environment and Wildlife Filmmaker’s Congress will commence this July in Durban.
The NEWF aims at creating a path to conservation through film while discovering the next generation of Africa’s nature, environment and wildlife filmmakers. This emphasizes the need for environmental conservation.
“We hope to become Africa’s premiere destination for the convergence of nature, environment, wildlife and adventure filmmakers, scientists, conservationists and broadcast media… Importantly there is also a critical need for Africa to expose to the world the wealth of her stories, wonder and natural history in addition to its wildlife, and as we try to develop and transform the industry in Africa we encourage that these stories are told from unique African perspectives by Africans.” – as stated by NEWF’s Executive Director Noel KOK.
The Program commences on Monday, 16th 2018 and ends on Wednesday, 18th 2018.
NEWF is funded by the National Film and Video Foundation, The KwaZulu-Natal Department of Economic Development, Tourism and Environment affairs, eThekwini Municipality, Parks and Recreation Unit and The KwaZulu-Natal Film Commission, and is made possible through various other sponsorships and partnerships.
