MultiChoice Uganda has launched the MultiChoice Talent Factory (MTF) portal, a digital hub for filmmakers. The online portal is the third touchpoint of the initiative following the launch of three regional MTF Academies (in West, East and Southern Africa), a 12-month film training programme aimed at upskilling the next generation of passionate young film creatives launched in October 2018 and the MTF Masterclasses launched in January this year to upskill industry professionals.

The interactive online portal aims at profiling and connecting Africa’s industry creatives and bringing pan-African talent and opportunities together in one place. The hub will allow filmmakers across the continent to network, find talent and showcase their work.

“The MTF Portal forms part of the investment MultiChoice has made to improving the quality and supporting the production of local content and storytelling across the continent. The MTF Portal will serve both seasoned professionals and aspiring talent in Africa’s film and TV industry,” says Patricia Kiconco, MultiChoice Uganda Head of Operations.

Users of the portal can also network with each other, connect and collaborate. The MTF Portal will also provide information on the MTF Academies and Masterclasses.

Mariam Ndagire, a renowned multi-award winning film pioneer said that the MTF Portal has been a long time coming, especially for a growing and thriving industry such as African film and television.

“The fact that it is built in Africa and for Africans is what makes this platform one of the most important tools for our industry. From training, mentoring to collaboration, the MTF Portal undoubtedly connects Africa’s film industry in a way that has never been done before, and this is what will keep the essence of storytelling alive.” She said.
