SOTAMBE Documentary Film and Arts Festival (SOTAMBE DFAF) aims to educate and raise awareness of social issues through film and arts. It serves as a platform for:
* Learning institutions that want to use documentaries, arts and panel discussions as a new and advanced method of learning.
* Local filmmakers and artists to showcase their projects, share ideas and inspire others.
* Capacity building for the filmmaking industry through filmmaking workshops.
In 2018, the 5th SOTAMBE Film Festival will take place in period 18 - 22 September 2018 in Kitwe, Zambia under the theme "These are the days - Celebrating a Zambian Filmmaker".
The theme is in keeping with and celebrates the development taking place in the Zambian Film Industry. The Government approved the Film Policy in 2017 and is working on establishing film schools. The Government is in full swing implementing the digital migration process from an analogue platform in order to increase broadcasting capacity.
Both private and national media houses will demand more and quality local content which will increase opportunities for the local film production houses and the consequent increase in employment. Zambian filmmakers therefore need to be prepared to meet these opportunities.
SOTAMBE DFAF therefore opened a Call for Submissions of:
* Fature Film
* Short Film
* Cartoon / Animations, and
* TV Series (2 episodes).
Submissions are open to everyone interested in film production. Please register your project(s) online via bitly.com/SDFAF2018
