An incredible opportunity for bilingual filmmakers!
The Burundi Film Center, a not-for-profit media development organization, is looking for Canadian filmmakers to teach (in French) this summer in Bujumbura, Burundi.
For 2 to 4 weeks in July, you’ll help train youth (aged 18-25) the basics of film theory and production, then help them bring their visions to life. Films from the first training session in 2007 played in over 50 international film festivals and received media coverage around the world.
All volunteers will have their accommodations taken care of while in Bujumbura, and a cook will be hired to cover most meals. The only major expense for filmmakers is airfare (approx. $2.000). A field trip to the Rwanda Film Festival in Kigali is also planned.
