The ACP/EU Programme partners
had their round table

Since Saturday 25 February 2023, the 28th edition of the Pan-African Film and Television Festival of Ouagadougou is in full swing in the Burkinabe capital. In this framework, the partners of the ACP/EU Audiovisual Coproduction programme in Africa and the Film Fund in Africa held their round table. Discussions during the round table focused on the financing of African cinema. With Pedro Pimenta
as moderator, the exchanges also touched on such issues as the availability of the fund, difficulties in accessing it and eligibility requirements. It also emerged from the exchanges that the fund has been created by the partners as a contribution to bringing African cinema closer to its audience. Although difficulties still exist in the financing mechanisms, stakeholders have noted generally satisfactory results.
