Project description

CNA Burkina is part of CNA Africa, a network of associations present in 10 countries (Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Côte d’Ivoire, Togo, Mali, Niger, Senegal and France). Its motto is: “Cinema for all, cinema everywhere. “The CNA specialises in communication for behavioural change, focusing on culture as a vehicle for sustainable development.

In addition to training children from underprivileged areas of Ouagadougou in the techniques of shooting animated films, the CNA will create a framework for moving image training and education. Accompanied by Slama Cinéma, a Belgian structure with expertise in training, the “Graine d’espoir” project also plans to train instructors. The short films produced will reflect the children’s context and cultural references. They will then be shown during 50 screenings and debates.
