DFM Access is a 12-week development platform for entry level producers. It provides a nurturing framework for participants with existing long-form or episodic independent film projects to hone and improve their scripts and project packages.
This online incubation programme supports producers in shaping their stories, preparing their project presentations and understanding the marketplace in order to create effective strategies for their current projects and to plan their professional trajectory. The programme consists of one-on-one mentorship and talks led by industry experts. At the end of the 12 week mentorship projects pitch to an independent panel who selects 3 projects to participate in the annual Durban FilmMart as an official project.
