African filmmakers huddle

Participants include directors whose work is in fest

African filmmakers and the European orgs that tend to finance their work will huddle in Berlin today.

Mini gabfest, part of the Berlinale Talent Campus, will address the difficulties facing African cinema ahead of a similarly-themed summit in Johannesburg in April.

Xhosa lingo South African film “Carmen in Khayelitsha,” Bizet’s opera set in a Cape Town township, was the surprise winner of last year’s Golden Bear.

Today’s participants include directors whose work is in this year’s fest.

Senegalese helmer Cheik N’diaye’s “The Call of the Sirens” and South African Khalo Matabane’s “Conversations on a Sunday Afternoon,” are both in the Forum section.

Nigerian Newton Adouaka’s “Waiting for an angel,” about the travails of a writer living under Nigeria’s 1990s military junta, is still a pre-production fledgling.

The helmer will talk about financing his film with funds from Nigeria, Switerland, Germany France and Senegal.
