Africa’s largest and most respected content focused event, DISCOP JOBURG, taking place from 20 to 22 November, will put a strong emphasis on African television projects in development, partnerships with South Africa, and the booming animation sector

 

A newly revamped and focused DISCOP JOBURG program will see a scope that goes beyond content buying and selling and that will include a strong sidebar program of panel discussions and master classes.

This DISCOPRO program will see more than 50 speakers, including many intrepid disrupters, on stage for panel discussions headlined by a series of masterclasses and a panel discussion led by experts from around the world sponsored by The Africa Channel.

These sessions will specifically address how independent producers can export their content and best adapt to the fast-paced world of multicultural television. Four sessions will provide a rapid course of study on what makes a project aimed at multicultural audiences actually sell in today’s challenging environment.

DISCOPRO Program Director Andrew Boozer discusses this program further,  “Given the growth predictions of content produced in Africa, this years’ program will address how producers, writers, directors can best adapt in this fast-paced multiscreen and cross-border world and highlight how Africa can play an influential role in tomorrow’s global content production and distribution industry.”

The DISCOPRO speaker line-up includes experts from broadcasters from across Africa such as Ethiopia’s Kana TV, the SABC, Royal Media from Kenya, and others.  International companies such as -Côte Ouest, Warner Media, Turner Africa and Fox studios will also be represented in the DISCOPRO line-up.

 

Narendra Reddy, EVP and General Manager, The Africa Channel, added “ We are proud to partner with the DISCOPRO conference program, which presents both an educational opportunity and an information exchange to accelerate growth in the Africa entertainment and media sector.  The global technology shifts in content consumption and distribution presents a significant opportunity for producers on the continent to access new markets and the breadth of speakers and the panelists will seek to address any perceived  barriers to entry.”

 

The practical and outcomes driven sessions include the following:

 

#1. Panel discussions around seven key pillars needed to facilitate unfettered growth in Africa’s fast-moving entertainment and media marketplace:

 

  1. Exporting Content Produced in Africa – Inside and Outside Africa.
  2. The Content Monetization Challenge
  3. Empowering Women in the Entertainment Industry
  4. Stop Fake News
  5. The United World of Animation
  6. Bringing Video Gaming Competitions to the Screen
  7. Why Dubbed Content is Important

 

#2. A Masterclass Program comprised of real world case  studies emphasizing practical solutions to issues:

 

  1. The Critical Importance of the Development Phase
  2. The Value of Copyright
  3. Music as a Cross-Border Accelerator
  4. Win-Win Distribution Strategies
  5. How to Shoot a Film Under $10,000 and Sell it to SHOWMAX

 

#3. A Tutorial Track focused on Coproduction Opportunities with South Africa.

 

In addition to proper targeting, original themes, and international distribution, multi-party coproduction is increasingly becoming an important factor for success. South Africa – with a rapidly developing content production and distribution sector, competitive advantages and many coproduction treaties already in place – is becoming an important supplier of talent, stories and production services to the global community. This tutorial track will put under the spotlight projects that can benefit from existing coproduction treaties between South Africa and France, the UK, Canada and Australia.

 

#4. A Pitching Program showcasing original Animation Projects.

 

For the third year running, DISCOPRO  in partnership with the African Animation Network (AAN) and the Annecy Animation Festival and Market (MIFA) – will host the grand finale of the Pan-African Animation du Monde 2020 Pitching Competition.  This program also includes an additional Pitching Showcase organized under the DISCOMICS banner and in partnership with the AAN.  With the world looking to the continent as a growth center, Africa is expected to play a role in the expansion of the global animation industry and Africa will be the focus territory for 2020 at the MIFA gathering.

 

#5. The First Look Series of Innovative Ideas.

 

Intertwined in the general agenda, the First Look Series will feature a line-up of inspiring presentations from experts, entrepreneurs, key players and great speakers who have the edge on how independent producers and storytellers can improve their crafts, generate more revenue and expand their reach.

Game of Thrones, Chernobyl, Fleabag win big at Emmys

Posted by radio On September - 23 - 2019 ADD COMMENTS

At last night’s Primetime Emmy Awards, Game of Thrones won Best Drama, Chernobyl took home Best Limited Series and Fleabag was named Best Comedy.

In the three main narrative categories, five series on Showmax (Game of Thrones, Chernobyl, Barry, A Very English Scandal and Succession) won eight awards; two Amazon comedies (Fleabag and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel) won six awards and three Netflix shows (Ozark, Pose and When They See Us) won four awards. Netflix also won Competition Programme (RuPaul’s Drag Race) and TV Movie (Black Mirror: Bandersnatch), putting them at six awards overall for the night.

 

This follows last week’s Sunday Times Top Brands Awards, where Showmax placed ahead of Netflix and just behind DSTV Now in the Paid Streaming Service category.

 

The Emmy results are also in line with Rotten Tomatoes’ recent list of The Best TV Shows of 2019 So Far, which features eight titles on Showmax in its top 20, compared to five titles available on Netflix and one on Prime Video in Africa.

According to Variety, HBO was the overall Emmy winner, taking home 34 awards from 137 nominations across both weekends, followed by Netflix with 27 wins out of 117 nominations.

 

Best Drama: Game of Thrones sets records 

In addition to winning Best Drama, Game of Thrones’ Peter Dinklage also won Best Supporting Actor for his role as Tyrion Lannister. This was his second consecutive win in the category and fourth overall – a new record for the category, putting him one ahead of Aaron Paul for Breaking Bad.

 

“I count myself as so fortunate to be a member of a community that is nothing but all about tolerance and diversity because there’s no other place where I’d be standing on a stage like this,” he said at the start of his acceptance speech.

 

Only available to stream on Showmax in Africa, Game of Thrones has now won 59 Emmys – the most of any narrative show ever and the second most of any show, period, behind only Saturday Night Live, which has been running for 44 years compared to Game of Thrones’ eight seasons.

 

After its fourth Best Drama win, the HBO fantasy is now tied for the most Best Drama wins of all time with Hill Street Blues, L.A. Law, Mad Men and The West Wing.

 

Other drama winners included Succession (Best Writing), Killing Eve (Best Actress for Jodie Comer), Ozark (Best Directing and Best Supporting Actress for Julia Garner) and Pose’s Billy Porter (Best Actor).

 

Best Limited Series: Chernobyl 

In addition to winning best limited series, Chernobyl won Best Writing and Best Directing.

 

Creator Craig Mazin dedicated his Emmys to the victims of the tragic Chernobyl nuclear power plant disaster.

 

The HBO historical drama is only available to stream on Showmax in South Africa.

 

Other Limited Series winners included When They See Us (Best Actor for Jharrel Jerome), A Very English Scandal (Best Supporting Actor for Ben Whishaw), Fosse/Verdon (Best Actress for Michelle Williams) and The Act (Best Supporting Actress for Patricia Arquette).

Best Comedy: Fleabag 

Having won six times in a row, Julia Louis-Dreyfus was tipped to win Best Actress for the final season of Veep, but she lost out to Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who also won Best Writing and Best Comedy. Fleabag also won Best Director.

 

Other comedy winners included Barry (Best Actor for Bill Hader) and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (Best Supporting Actor for Tony Shalhoub and Supporting Actress for Alex Borstein).

“We want a fun way to ease music lovers into the main Jazz festival, while still enticing those that are indecisive about buying their festival tickets. The artists we have on the lineup are all accomplished, dynamic performers who we are determined to build relations with for future shows. We encourage everyone to come and have a good time at the market; it’s a friendly, welcoming environment for all.”
