Kenya agrees filming Memorandum of Understanding with South Africa
Kenya Film Commission and South Africa’s Film & Video Foundation have agreed a Memorandum of Understanding in Cannes. The agreement is intended to facilitate greater co-operation between the two countries in terms of location filming, training and their wider production industries.
“This is the beginning of a strong relationship that will ensure that we tell authentic African stories,” said Kenya Film Commission's chief Peter Muthie: “We are also celebrating our first official participation in Cannes and, already, opportunities are opening up for our filmmakers.”
“As African countries we are steadily earning a place on the global stage,” commented Zama Mkosi, CEO of National Film and Video Foundation: “Working together will guarantee joint development of content as well as marketing of both the countries’ films and talent.”
Alex Mulwa, the Kenya Film Commission’s Director of Marketing, added that the new agreement will strengthen African location filming and will help the South African and Kenyan film industries to “complement each other, rather than compete.”
