The FAME Film Shorts Festival is an independent film festival dedicated to the discovery and advancement of the very best independent filmmakers from across Africa. Each submission must originate wholly from Africa. The festival showcases films that demonstrate innovation, creativity, and quality across seven categories. Our Jurors are trailblazers within the industry and share the same goal to showcase African thought-provoking cinematic creativity.
Together with MIP Africa, FAME Film Shorts Festival has a wide variety of events for filmmakers to participate in. From 4 to 6 September, the Cape Town International Convention Centre will come alive with content sessions, workshops and masterclasses presented by industry professionals with the purpose of educating and inspiring professionals within the film and television industry. We are also a strong supporter of musicians and live music can be heard as part of FAME After Dark. Deadline is 30 May 2023.
