#Script2ScreenAFRICA2017 FILMMAKING REALITY TV PROJECT: ACROSS 3 CONTINENTS AND 7 COUNTRIES, 60 FINALISTS, 15 STAR ACTORS & FILMMAKERS AS MENTORS, 20 SHORT FILMS ON SOCIAL JUSTICE, 1 FEATURE FILM



The African Film industry is set for a revolution through filmmaking, as High Definition Film Academy (HDFA) launches the 6th edition of its Script2ScreenAfrica filmmaking and Acting Reality TV project, with the theme “Film as a catalyst for revolution!”. The Reality TV project which is scheduled to hold from July 1st to August 26, 2017, will host 60 Finalists, 12 Star actors and trail blazing filmmakers as mentors, 20 Short films on Social Justice, and climax with a premiere of the short films at the 2017 Script2ScreenAfrica Awards.


Script2ScreenAfrica is High Definition Film Academy’s yearly intensive Hands on filmmaking and Acting training, involving three stages: Training, Short Film Competition, and Awards.

In a time when our continent is overwhelmed with multiple social ills; corruption, injustice, inequality, lack of quality education, lack of power supply, poverty, and insecurity, we seek to train filmmakers with a vision to tell stories that will tackle some of the continent’s most pressing issues head-on, educate viewers while entertaining them, and hopefully pique effective action once the screen’s glow diminishes. Filmmakers who understand that film is an ideal catalyst for change, and linking a powerful story with a highly developed activist campaign could move public opinion and start a revolution.
