CALL FOR PROPOSALS: THE ADAMIC WORKSHOPS ® - Film director training workshops for Cameroonian women cineastes


CALL FOR PROPOSALS

THE ADAMIC WORKSHOPS ®

Film director training workshops for Cameroonian women cineastes

2014

I. BACKGROUND

For a long time Cameroonian women have focused on cinema within the context of actors, script supervisors, make-up artists but were hesitant to enter into the areas that were considered men’s purview. Yet those who have endeavoured in these areas often succeed with flying colours. Josephine Dagnou, Yolande Samba Ekoumou, Blandine Foumane testify to the success of women's creative efforts. It is in this context that ADAMIC—with the support of the Goethe Institut Kamerun and the association MIS ME BINGA via its festival of the same name—was established by a group of talented and dedicated women who would provide opportunities for women to professionalize, to produce their work and also to develop their talent.

II. OBJECTIVE

The competition aims to:

- Train women in the diverse areas of cinema,
- Strengthen the capacity of Cameroonian women filmmakers,
- Professionalize Cameroonian women in cinema
- Encourage Cameroonian film production

III. IMPLEMENTATION

This first edition of the ADAMIC Workshops will be held from 18 to 30 December 2014 at the Mismebinga space in the Byem-assi school— with the exception of 24 and 25 December 2014. The workshop will work with the selected ten women participants on scriptwriting for fiction film; giving them the opportunity to learn different writing techniques. This workshop will also include a two-day refresher session in directing and camera technique. At the end of the workshop two films (13-minutes maximum) will be written and directed* as a practice exercise. 

*Films made in the context of this workshop are the property of ADAMIC.
