AFM has announced the speakers for its roundtable African Co-Productions: The Possibilities And The Challenges.

The event will run on November 9 and features Côte Ouest CEO Bernard Azria; group head of Enterprise Risk Management, Heritage Banking Company Limited Dike Dimiri; regional director of M-Net / Africa Magic Wangi Mba-Uzoukwu;  iROKO Partners founder Jason Njoku; and ZenHQ Films owner Chris Roland.

Ijeoma Onah, the CEO of FISL Global Network, will moderate the session.

“Africa’s film industry is growing at a rapid pace,” said AFM managing director Jonathan Wolf. “Coupled with its high rate of urbanisation, the dual growth of more quality films and an expanding audience is creating opportunities for producers in Africa and around the world.  AFM is the perfect platform to connect Africa with the global production community.”

The roundtable will take place from 4-5.30pm and takes place as all roundtables do in the AFM Studio on the lobby level of the Loews Hotel.
