African Encounters meets

Are collaborative efforts the future of filmmaking? | Perspectives Talk is delighted to come together with African Encounters to have an interactive session that puts the focus on collaboration in documentary filmmaking. What value does (intercultural) co-creation add to the filming process and the film itself? And what does co-creation mean for co-production? Guest filmmakers will enter into a dialogue with the participants and report on their experiences.
