The signing ceremony for the memorandum of understanding between (Institute of Creative Arts for Progress in Africa) ICAPA Trust, The Pan-African Observatory for audio-visual and cinema (OPAC) and Sisters Working in Film and Television (SWIFT) of South Africa was held recently, in Harare. Tsitsi Dangarembga, the signatory of the memorandum, had this to say:
 
“This signing ceremony follows meetings between Souad Houssein, founding director of OPAC, Zanele Mthembu, the acting programme manager of SWIFT and myself, in our capacities as representatives of our three organisations. These meetings took place in Harare last year, during the 2023 edition of the International Images Film Festival for Women (IIFF).”

As noted in the ICAPA December 2023 newsletter, “the objective of this historic meeting of three organizations led by African women was to draft and sign an agreement to collaborate in the areas of training, women’s film festivals, including African women’s film awards and fundraising.”
