The Multichoice Talent Factory (MTF) has launched the MTF Portal which is an interactive online portal that aims profiling and connecting Africa’s industry creatives. It also aims at bringing Pan African talent and opportunities together in one place.
The portal is part of Multichoice’s shared value initiative which has seen the launch of three regional MTF Academies (in East, West and Southern Africa). They have also launched a 12-month film training programme aimed at upskilling the next generation of passionate young film creatives which started in October 2018 and the MTF Masterclasses launched in January this year to upskill industry professionals.
The portal will allow filmmakers across the continent to network, find talent and showcase their work. It will also serve as an authoritative source of industry news, supported by MultiChoice’s long-standing position of being Africa’s leading storyteller. 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.
Njoki Muhoho, MTF Academy East Africa Director, had this to say, “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.”
