  • MultiChoice Talent Factory Industry Masterclasses.

The MultiChoice Talent Factory Portal is an interactive online portal profiling and connecting Africa’s film industry, bringing talent and opportunities together on one platform.

The pan-African portal was designed specifically to meet the needs of the growing African film industry and offers open access to film creatives across Africa to showcase their talent, access opportunities, stay up to date with industry news and expand their industry network across Africa and beyond.

MultiChoice Talent Factory

Established just last year, the MultiChoice Talent Factory Academy is an education programme that develops emerging TV and film talent in Africa, through an accredited 12-month immersion programme including both theory and hands-on experience in cinematography, editing, audio production, and storytelling.

It is the first academy of its kind, spanning three regions and 13 countries across Africa. Sixty deserving young, talented candidates who want to work and innovate in film and television production get the opportunity to hone their skills alongside industry greats.

This year-long funded programme is offered through accredited regional MultiChoice Talent Factory Academies based in Kenya (for East Africa), Nigeria (for West Africa) and Zambia (for Southern Africa) in partnership with respected local academic institutions.

    Samuel Tinotenda Dzingirai is my name. I’m about to turn 20 in 18 June. A Zimbabwean with great passion in acting, script writing , TV presenting as well as story telling. I’m a high school studying Arts subjects namely Literature in English , History and Family and Religious Studies.

    I have already written some of few movies notably Why me orphan , Fighting for gender equality , A secret up on my destiny, My real daddy and Stella’s biggest dream become a nightmare. All of the above mentioned movies based on reality. It is my hope and my dream for these movies to be seen world wide.

    I wish to know more of film industry. At school am good a live theatre and story telling. At home I sometimes stand in front of the mirror and do some actions be it presenting something or acting gestures.

    As someone who is in need of peoples support. I do keep my good reputation by socializing with people in and around my community.

    I Hope Multichoice Talent factory will hey me by up lifting my talent as it is to others. Thank you.

    i think you should open doors who have never joined professional vocation centers(if am not mistaken) especially as it is in Africa and you know well that this entertainment industry the proffessionalism in most cases in Africa depends on the experience yet talent is natural!!!

      I am a web developer, and I’ve come up with an idea
      which will be one of its kind, I hope I can get a chance to use this medium to express my idea through deb site designed just for the sole purpose that contributes to the growth and development of Nollywood movies .
      The website will help improve the current standard of film production , which would influence the method and quality of story telling, script writing, directing etc.
