The Malian national union for filmmakers (UNCM) organises three intensive courses for young filmmakers in Mali in which they can develop their professional skills in the technical and substantive aspects of film making.
The initiative provides capacity building courses to filmmakers which is much needed in Mali. There is no other high level filmtraining program in the country, while there is a rich tradition. Now it is more than ever necessary that good stories of Mali will be produced. There is a direct connection with the filmproduction companies, so a substantial portion of the trainees will find a job after the courses. UNCM is a respected organisation, connects the best filmmakers of the country with starting artists and collaborates with other film institutions within and outside Mali.
