African filmmakers telling their own stories, this is what One Fine Day Film Workshop is about.
Treasuring African stories and wanting to enable talented filmmakers to reach a larger amount of viewers, the independent film production company ONE FINE DAY FILMS developed with DW Akademie and GINGER INK a training workshop concept called One Fine Day Film Workshop.
The training is closely adapted to the individual requirements of African film enthusiasts today and aimed at the professionalization of the craft of filmmaking. It provides the instruction of young filmmakers in various departments by professional filmmakers, as well as the realization of a feature film as an on the job training that conveys filmmaking in practice.
During the workshop a chosen group of talented Africans will get in contact with professional filmmakers from all over the world who are pleased to share their know-how and knowledge with them.
The participants will be guided and taught in developing and realizing their own visions and supported to attract attention with their films not only in Africa, but also in the international market.
This hands-on seminar enables the participants to learn how to make a film on their own and enhances their cinematographic and creative know-how.
By sharing the same experience during the workshops and the making of a film as a group of individuals not only a lot of exchange but the enthusiasm to continue is assured.
The One Fine Day Film Workshop’s are a partnership project between the DW Akademie, ONE FINE DAY FILMS and GINGER INK. It is supported by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development , the Film- & Medienstiftung NRW, the Goethe-Institut Nairobi and ARRI Film- & TV Services.
