IN TRYING to showcase and develop new talent in filmmaking, Multichoice has established a competition for aspirant filmmakers.

The Film Talent Celebration will give young people in this field a platform.

Itumeleng Letebele, of MultiChoice, says the competition is an acknowledgment of the immense filmmaking talent that exists in South Africa.

“The competition provides industry players with an opportunity to reflect on the achievements as an industry,” he says. “This is a nationwide search for the best filmmakers, and who are able to craft authentic stories through short films.

“The competition presents numerous opportunities for the winners, such as their films being promoted and broadcast on the DStv platform. “We encourage people to submit their short films before February 29 (tomorrow). The length of the films has to be between three to 10 minutes.”
