I have been meaning to write about the Cameroon Film industry for a while..The first time I watched some really good documentaries by Cameroonian film makers was at the Houston African Film Festival in 2015..
I don’t even know what to call it…Callywood, Camwood, Calliwood etc..or just the Cameroon Film Industry (that sounds better to me)…
Is CAMIFF the answer to Cameroon’s struggling film industry?? Ehmm why are things in Camer such a struggle in general..Our film industry has a lot of potential and our films seem to get more recognition and watched outside the country than within Cameroon..
I will continue my rant in another post ?
The second edition of CAMIFF – Cameroon International Film Festival was launched yesterday with some of our actors, actress, directors and stake holders from within and outside Cameroon.
Cameroon International Film Festival plans to advance its corporate priority to make the Cameroonian film industry a culturally and economically richer platform by partnering with a vibrant and dynamic Corporate brand to host an exciting annually showcase which will engage Cameroonian and international films. The Cameroon International Film Festival (CAMIFF) is put forward as an event that will showcase and present a complete immersion into the world of film making with participation from actors, directors, scriptwriters, cinematographers, sound engineers, editors, light engineers, students, equipment manufacturers and media. The festival will feature a series of workshops and training opportunities to raise the standards of the local industry; networking events such as the film and equipment market wherein partnerships are encouraged through development…
