Durban Filmmart 2024

Africa’s Premier Co-Production
and Film Finance Market

The 2024 edition of the DFM will spotlight key elements within the film industry that include social responsibility and accountability in filmmaking, IP protection, artist/filmmaker rights, labour issues, and much more.

Disruption. Responsibility. Accountability.
