DocSHARE is an initiative of the Documentary Filmmakers Association of South Africa to create opportunities for experienced film professionals to share their knowledge and engage with the work and concerns of our existing and prospective members.

We would like to offer various virtual DocShare sessions during 2021-2022 ranging from skills workshops on specific topics to advanced professional development.

Our aims with this initiative are to:

  • facilitate the sharing of knowledge, experience and best practice from and between African filmmakers, appealing to and reaching a pan-African audience
  • facilitate open discussion about the practical, conceptual and ethical challenges facing documentary filmmakers
  • provide virtual networking opportunities to our members and other stakeholders beyond the South African market
  • engage with our members on a regular basis throughout the year and build relationships with the rest of the continent
