Training program dedicated to TV series’ screenwriting
LAFAAAC, in partnership with Wazobia FM/TV and La Fémis, and with the support of the French Embassy in Nigeria, launches an ambitious and innovative training program
A call for applications will be published in September 2020.
The African continent is about to become the next hub of creative industries whose backbone is Nollywood, one of the world’s giant in audiovisual and cinematographic production.
But if African productions are gaining more and more international recognition, such as the recent first original Nigerian series premiered on Netflix, the growth and influence of African original contents are still hampered by a limited training offer. Moreover, French stakeholders in the field remain few.
In partnership with Wazobia FM/TV and La Fémis (a French State film school), and the support of the French Embassy in Nigeria, LAFAAAC, a young French start-up, will make available a complete training course on the fundamentals of television screenwriting.
The training will combine different complementary educational methods: mobile learning, masterclass, animated tutorials, virtual classes and workshops, all developed with well-known experts to develop the best of each tool. Among these professionals, the Nigerian group Wazobia, which will help adapt the offer to the specific needs of Nigeria through its recent initiative Filmlab Nigeria.
