Durban, South Africa will be the destiny for young African  filmmakers, directors, producer, screenwriters, animators, cinematographers, sound editors, or anybody involved in just about anything related to filmmaking.

The Durban International Film Festival takes place for 12 days at the end of July and will showcase nearly 300 international films. African and South African films will be given special attention and people from all parts of society are encouraged to enjoy the shows, which is why there will also be screenings in townships where amenities like cinemas are non-existent.

The Talent Campus is part of the festival’s seminar and workshop programme. The Campus also calls for participants for Talent Press, a mentoring programme for three African film critics in collaboration with FIPRESCI and Goethe Institut, which makes a welcome return in its second year. Talent Press mentors will offer their expertise to guide selected participants in the art of film criticism with access to all the screenings of the 34th Durban International Film Festival.

The selected talents will have the opportunity to attend films and events at the 32nd Durban International Film Festival in addition to the specific activities offered by the Campus.

The theme for this year’s festival is “Memetic Africa”. The selected talents will have the opportunity to attend films and events at the 32nd Durban International Film Festival in addition to the specific activities offered by the campus.

In order to participate in the talent festival, individuals have to submit their applications through http://vp.eventival.eu/cca. The application deadline is April 1, 2013.
