CaribbeanTales Media Group (CTMG) and the Durban FilmMart (DFM) are pleased to announce the renewal of their partnership to develop films and television content by African women and women of colour from the global Diaspora. The 3rd CIneFAM-South Africa Co-Production Accelerator will be launched during the 10th Durban FilmMart (DFM) which takes place from 19 to 22 July 2019.


The 2019 CIneFAM Program will take the form of a series of workshops, in Canada and South Africa, that aims to kickstart original co-production led by experienced and seasoned female producers, writers and directors from both countries.

“We are excited to expand our program and our partnership with DIFF, with a focus on building a slate of compelling co-productions aimed at the global market. Our ultimate goal is to increase the pool of world-class female-driven content so as to build the audiovisual capacity of both our countries,” said Frances-Anne Solomon, Founder and Executive Director of CineFAM, and CEO of the CaribbeanTales Media Group.


2019 Feature Film Incubator

The CineFAM Feature Film Incubator was a one day workshop held in early March that was designed to help women of colour filmmakers develop the skills necessary to face the challenging world of feature film production.

With generous support from Trinity Square Video and Ryerson University, 6 talented filmmakers interacted with top industry mentors including representatives from The Harold Greenberg Fund, Ontario Creates, Telefilm Canada and The Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television.

Thank you to participants Chrisann Hessing, Maya Annik, Kelly Fyffe-Marshall, Muna Deria, Kulbinder Saran Caldwell and Melanee Murray-Hunt for bringing their A-game! Stay tuned for more opportunities from CineFAM Women Creators of Colour
