DEADLINE: Rough Cut Lab Africa

April 5 @ 16:00

Rough Cut Lab Africa is back for our 6th edition with a special focus this year on Lusophone Africa, the PALOP countries. In striving to connect filmmakers on the continent beyond land and borders our biggest obstacle remains the barrier of language. In striving to build our networks of comradeship and family, this year’s RCLA is hosted in Maputo, Mozambique, and is open to submissions from all over the continent with precedence for this year’s edition to the Portuguese speaking countries of Angola, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique and São Tomé and Príncipe.RCLA supports filmmakers’ struggles in the rough cut editing phase of story telling. With targeted consultation and detailed discussions around story construction, obstacles, unforeseen problems and possible ways forward, our world class African consultants from all spheres of the filmmaking process avail themselves to your stories for your consideration towards your vision.Through our rigorous submissions process 9 African long-form independent documentary projects will be selected where both director and editor are invited to allow the RCLA into their worlds. We do not intend or expect to finish your films but to help them overcome story issues towards finishing.
If either the director or editor are of African decent you are invited to submit to our virtual lab that takes place between the 8th and 22nd of June 2024 for a series of guided consultation sessions. The call is open and the deadline for submissions is on or before 4pm (SAT), Friday 5th April.
