After launching The MTF initiative which will be delivered through three touchpoints: the MTF academies, Masterclasses and the MTF Portal, MultiChoice further announced calls to entry for the MTF Academy, a 12-month, fully-funded educational programme aimed at furnishing 60 deserving, young, talented people with skills to work and innovate in film and television production. The academy will take place at three regional MTF Academies based in Kenya for East Africa, Nigeria for Western Africa and Zambia for Southern African countries.

MultiChoice urges all hopeful film and TV students to visit the website today to complete their entries and submit them in order to be considered for this opportunity.
“We’re delighted to see the amount of enthusiasm this initiative has so far received by all our stakeholders.
