Tick-tock! one week till entries close for Mutlichoice talent factory academy!

There’s only one week to go before calls to entry for the MTF Academy closes so that 60 deserving, young, talented people are selected for a 12-month, fully-funded educational programme aimed at furnishing them with skills to work and innovate in film and television production. The programme will take place at three regional MTF Academies based in Kenya for East Africa, Nigeria for Western Africa and Zambia for Southern African countries and will be overseen by acclaimed local film & TV industry experts. The Academy Directors include Ms Njoki Muhoho for the East Africa Hub; Mr Berry Lwando for the Southern Africa Hub while the West African hub will be under the auspices of Mr Femi Odugbemi, who was recently announced as one of the only 10 “artists and executives who have distinguished themselves by their contributions to theatrical motion pictures” invited to join The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences membership in 2018. Femi and his fellow invitees will bring the number of the coveted membership of the organisation responsible for the Oscars to 928.
