The Durban FilmMart Institute is a non-profit company that facilitates local and international trade and investment in African film content
The changing times and continuous shifts have produced a stream of new ideas and voices influencing our society. The rapid acceleration of technology is deconstructing the film industry and pushing it to adapt to new trends creating the emergence of a stronger African presence.
