Africa, Caribbean & Pacific in front-row
« A-C-P »: never had these 3 regions displayed that much creativity on screen and never had they been so greeted, in festivals, on platforms, by audiences. The emergence of these new talents is fostered by new support mechanisms: film funds in a dozen of African countries, stronger efforts form traditional funders like Francophony (OIF), European Union (EU) or the Organization of ACP States (OACPS). Nevertheless, it remains more difficult to start and complete a film when you are a filmmaker or producer in Haiti, Chad or Vanuatu – and more so in 2020-21 when networking opportunities in festivals & markets were divided by ten. OuiCoprod is a professional platform implemented by several public support funds to facilitate talks between ACP film & series producers and their partners all over the world: production houses, agents & distributors, festivals & TV/platforms, sponsors & advertisers, technical & artistic partners.
Credible & viable projects
The few dozens of fictions, documentaries and series presented on OuiCoprod were all picked by very selective commissions, among 400 applications examined in 2020-21; three quarters of them count with at least one grant awarded by OIF, Fonsic (Ivory Coast), EU and ACP.
Professionals looking for new projects, or completed works from ACP countries will therefore find here a selection of the most solid on the market, artistically or production-wise.
They will be able to receive advice from « the experts » that make OuiCoprod a lively tool more than a digital window - Initiative Film for cinema fictions, the Yaoundé Film Lab for documentaries, DISCOP AFRICA for TV series & fictions – who will know best what project will best suit their search.
