The Ladima Foundation is announcing a major expansion of its professional training and development arm, The Ladima Film Academy, with the support of the DW Akademie.
As part of its on-going commitment to the professional development of women in film, TV and content across the African continent, the Ladima Foundation is expanding and formalizing its education and training offering for 2021 and beyond, the organisation said in a statement made available to TCN.
Earlier this year, in January 2020 two short courses in animation and documentary film took place in Lagos, Nigeria, and building on that success the Ladima Foundation will now be rolling out comprehensive online and on-site training across seven key film disciplines while further developing intermediate courses for: Documentary filmmaking, Animation, Editing, Cinematography, Producing, Directing and Scriptwriting.
These online courses will roll out in January 2021, followed shortly thereafter by on-site courses in Lagos, Nigeria. All of the courses will be FREE to those women who apply and are accepted in the courses. The application process will open in November 2020 via the Ladima Foundation website, https://ladima.africa/.
Online courses will be open to all aspiring and emerging professional women in film living in Africa who are members of the Ladima Foundation A-List, whilst onsite courses will be primarily focused on Nigerian women but also open to others depending on Covid-19 protocols.
