The MultiChoice Talent Factory (MTF) is now recruiting aspiring African talent – that’s you – to gain theoretical knowledge and hands-on experience in cinematography, film editing, audio production, and storytelling. Sixty talented students from 13 African countries will get the chance to hone their film and television production skills alongside industry greats.

Who knows, perhaps one day your name will be rolling across the closing credits on our DStv channels.

 MultiChoice Talent Factory graduates will also get to showcase their portfolio of work on the MTF Portal – a database for film professionals across the continent, where they can access job opportunities, keep up to date with industry news, and expand their network.
