Afriqu’Anim’Action follows on the “Training to the animated cinema professions: pre-production development” project funded under the previous ACP-EU ACPFilms programme (2007-2012). This new activity has two main aims; firstly, to undertake trainings in the production of animated films and provide assistance to young creators and, secondly, to ensure the training of African trainers in this field in order to contribute to the development of a specific central-western African network.

PROJECT PROGRESS

2012
August-December: first workshops held in Kinshasa and Bujumbura. Training on shooting and sound recording, script writing and production of animated films.

2013
January-July: new workshops held in Kinshasa for 13 students. Development and production of each animated film project.

13 September : evening presentation of cartoons made by the creators during the training sessions (Institut Français in Kinshasa - Halle de la Gombe).

The training enabled the realisation of nine animated short films addressing cross-cutting issues (gender, environment, citizenship); 8 short films were selected in four festivals (Anima Brussels, Afrikafilmfestival, Animation Film Festival of Meknes, International Film Festival and audiovisual Bujumbura) and proposed to other 10 festivals.

Some short videos developed in the framework of the project:
