Project description

“If you can’t go to the cinema, the cinema will come to you” – this is the raison d’être of the ATCNA (Association Togolaise du Cinéma Numérique Ambulant or Togolese Association of Travelling Digital Cinema). This association was founded in 2013 with a triple objective: to provide training in cinema professions to Togolese people living far from the capital, to produce awareness-raising films and to give the most isolated populations access to film screenings.

The project enables 20 Togolese participants, selected mainly from regions without access to quality training in cinema professions, to take part in a workshop to create short films lasting 15 to 30 minutes. These films will then be taken on a national tour of 30 screenings organised in the country’s most isolated rural areas, as well as in schools. At the end of the tour, they will also be broadcast on local Togolese television channels in order to reach a wider audience.
