A room exploding with talent, skill and experience. People of all races and gender, with one passion blended together in one room. The KwaZulu Natal Film Commission (KZNFC), hosted a two-day Film Industry Indaba in Durban which merged great minds of the industry. It was a first of its kind for KwaZulu Natal.

It brought together filmmakers, agencies and media personals all under one roof to create and increase more opportunities for the future and to solve challenges that the industry is currently facing. The Indaba saw speakers from institutions such as the SABC, NFVF, DTI, South African Screen Federation and other stakeholders.

There were several thought provoking questions that were asked and many thoughtful answers given. You had to be there to experience the full magnitude of lessons learned by breath that cannot be taught by reading.

This was a meet and greet moment and the who’s who of the industry were present with their magnific self. We had the pleasure of interacting with people that we consider as legends in their fields. We learnt education will get you started but passion, tenacity, determination and courage to pursue the inevitable¬†will keep you rising to the top.
