ABOUT META CINEMA FORUM AFRICA

African cinemagoers’ appetite has been growing exponentially and the market now faces a massive shortage of cinema venues. Africa’s film and audio-visual industries could create over 20 million jobs and contribute $20 billion to the continent’s combined GDP according to the UN cultural agency, UNESCO. UNESCO also reported that Africa’s potential as a film powerhouse remains largely untapped, despite significant growth in production across the continent. While Nigeria alone produces around 2,500 films a year, there is only one cinema screen per 787,402 people in Africa, creating an unassailable opportunity for the exhibition companies to expand into this untapped market.

In light of this, we are organizing the META Cinema Forum – Africa to bring the cinema stakeholders together to identify collaborative opportunities that can help in closing these gaps.

Furthermore, storytelling in Africa has been one of the most profound ways to communicate, teach values, life lessons, preserve history and traditional culture. Storytelling has also been deeply rooted in the African culture. Coming into the age of cinemas and technological advancements, African storytelling is taking shapes that are propagating beyond Africa. In addition, Africa hosts vibrant filmmakers from a variety of cultural backgrounds adding rich content to the market. The forum will host a content market – the ‘Africa Film Market’. The content market will focus on nurturing these filmmakers, providing them with a launchpad and providing worthy opportunities to the investors, producers and studios.

The forum is well-positioned to be the largest gathering of cinema investors in Africa as it is a collaborative effort between the National Film Authority of Ghana and the cinema convention organiser -the Great Minds Group.

Welcome message

JULIET YAA ASANTEWA ASANTE

CEO, The  National Film Authority, Ghana

The National Film Authority of Ghana is pleased to announce its partnership with Great Minds Group and together, we invite you to META Cinema Forum Africa – the largest gathering of cinema investors in Africa on the 21st & 22nd November 2022 in Ghana.

META Cinema Forum Africa will work to close the gap in Cinema Exhibition across African countries, and we use this opportunity to encourage film authorities, exhibitors, producers, studios, distributors, filmmakers, investors, suppliers, and governments to showcase their offerings at this exclusive gathering of cinema stakeholders.

As the headquarters of the Africa Continental Free Trade Agreement (AFCFTA), Ghana is proud to be the cinema gateway opening the door for the continent in its strategic bid to the world of cinema investors, exhibitors, and builders. Africa remains the most underserved market in cinema Exhibition with less than 1700 screens to over 1.3 billion population on the continent. A vibrant cinema infrastructure will ease the distribution headache of the continent and encourage more investments into high-quality content.

As the CEO of the National Film Authority of Ghana, I made a pitch to the 470 plus investors at the META Cinema Forum in Dubai in 2021 and it is with pride that in 2022, we welcome the world of Cinema investors onto the African continent and into Ghana. I look forward to meeting you at the event.

Who will attend the META Cinema Forum Africa?

The Africa Film Market (AFM) is a physical and online B2C and B2B film and music content marketplace for the African continent. It started as a physical marketplace in 2018 to provide a platform to buy, sell, invest and/or distribute content from filmmakers, musicians and other content developers in the film and film-music industries.
AFM matches and promotes content from filmmakers, musicians and other content developers with distributors’ and other sellers by promoting those content to them. Distributors and broadcasters all over the world can thus, search, screen, negotiate rights packages, etc. with filmmakers.
The online version of the Market, called, AFM Online will launch this year. The business of AFM Online is to provide a one-stop, easy and reliable marketplace for filmmakers, distributors, broadcasters, agents and investors to buy, sell, invest and/or distribute unique content from filmmakers, film musicians, and other content developers in the African film industry and beyond.
With AFM Online, negotiations and transactions are entirely online, and you get to decide how you want your transactions controlled, either by yourself or by AFM. We value originality and authentic storytelling by independent African filmmakers and film musicians. AFM provides the platform opportunities for such content to be displayed to investors and content buyers all over the globe.
The Africa Film Market (AFM) is a unique marketplace within the African continent and the World because of its dual approach: Providing a physical marketplace held annually during the Black Star International Film Festival and META Cinema Forum Africa in Ghana and then a 24/7 online marketplace.

Digital Conference 2019 Introduction

Fiscina domesticus lixa est. Cur vita mori? Triticum, heuretes, et nixus. Clabulare superbus abaculus est. Est lotus gemna, cesaris. Equisos mori! Uria moris, tanquam dexter cedrium. Hydras ridetis, tanquam bi-color saga. Pol, a bene tumultumque, castus nuptia! Noster, neuter stellas diligenter.

Est emeritis epos, cesaris. Competition de brevis zelus, imperium solem! Byssus prareres, tanquam dexter glos. Eheu, habena! Lotus monss ducunt ad idoleum. Castus fluctuss ducunt ad mineralis. A falsis, magister castus ignigena. Demolitiones cadunt in fortis avenio! Audax, raptus exsuls superbe.

Ubi est nobilis cobaltum? Domesticus capios ducunt ad demissio. Torquiss favere, tanquam bassus glos. Vae, hippotoxota! Superbus, mirabilis poetas vix aperto de teres, germanus amicitia. Vae. Fortis nixs ducunt ad acipenser. A falsis, musa nobilis gabalium. Cum decor ire, omnes fraticinidaes.
