Short Company Profile

NEWF is a platform in Africa for filmmakers, conservationists and scientists to engage, network and contribute through storytelling towards a shared vision of protecting the earths’ natural assets for future generations. What started out as an annual Congress in 2017 has grown to become an all year round capacity building, impact and outreach organisation building a connected network of Africans advocating for the protection of our continent's natural habitats and wildlife through visual storytelling. Our vision is that the Stories of Africa that celebrate and advocate for the protection of her natural history are told by a connected network of visual storytellers organically led by indigenous African voices. Our Mission is to remove the barriers to entry and build capacity in order to enable access, support inclusion and foster a culture of equity for African nature, environment and wildlife visual storytellers. Africa Refocused is a collaboration between NEWF and National Geographic Society. Together, NEWF and the National Geographic Society support African storytellers across the continent as they navigate the global film industry, which will help to ensure that current and future African nature and wildlife stories are increasingly told by, and prominently feature, a diverse network of African storytellers.
