The 2023 Multichoice Talent Factory cohort

By Our Reporter

MultiChoice Talent Factory (MTF) has welcomed 60 new students for its Class of 2023 in its 12 Month fully-funded education programme, that develops emerging TV and film talent in Africa. The training programme includes both theory and hands-on experience in filmmaking from scriptwriting to cinematography, editing and audio post-production.

Four Ugandans; Mafayo Samuel, Ssejjemba Charles, Nalunga Hannah and Tamale Enock have been selected to be part of this year’s training programme, following an in-depth interview and adjudication process by regional Academy Directors and industry representatives.

“We take pride in knowing that our Ugandan alumni have gone on to represent and fly the Ugandan flag high internationally. Alumni like Daisy Masembe and Isiko Abubaker won the Best MultiChoice Talent Factory Student film award at the Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards last year as well as Nassanga Ann, a recent graduate from the academy whose film Cheza won at the 2022 Kalasha Film Awards in Nairobi for Best Student Film last year.” Rinaldi Jamugisa, the PR and communications manager at MultiChoice Uganda commented.

MTF Academies continue to work with their regional and international partners to ensure that the students receive the best standard of training and practical experience needed to hone their skills and contribute positively to the film and TV industry.

Th academy also works with renowned local and international facilitators, such as academician Dr Benea Shapaya, Senior Lecturer Film and Media Studies at Kenyatta University, who will be facilitating a session on the history of film and television industry in Africa, and 4x SAFTA award-winning writer, producer, and Director – Neil McCarthy. The program also boasts a high calibre of award-winning specialists from across the continent, many of whom produce content for M-Net group channels.

The top graduates from each of the three academies will be presented with the incredible opportunity to further develop their skills with various internships sponsored by MTF partner organisations such as the New York Film Academy (NYFA) and Zee World amongst others.
