Slum Film Festivals encourages learning between artists from the north and south and also within south (south-south) collaboration. It encourages exchanges between artists where they learn film production techniques and marketing, and also produce films in the process. Boot camps and coaching sessions between experienced artists and producers take place after each festival and it is an activity. We do believe that such capacity building process will help the artist learn to produce marketable products and also be able to reach out to local and international markets. SFF requires support to ensure that: A collaborative project between ASMO and Slum Film Festival will endeavor to develop SFF as a sustainable vehicle of capacity building of young independent filmmakers, marketing and knowledge on film production in the region.
