Community Television Distribution research Workshop

Dear Partner

As someone who has produced content for Cape Town TV or indicated an interest in producing content for Cape Town TV, we would like to invite you to an Industry Dialogue which will be taking place on Friday, 11 March, 2011 on AFDA campus, where CTVs studio is located.

The purpose of the Industry Dialogue is to engage with members of the independent television production community on Cape Town Television’s Terms of Trade and commissioning practices and to put out a call for content for specific programmes that we intend to outsource to independent producers.

The Industry Dialogue is taking place in the context of a larger "Industry Dialogue" being hosted by Rainbow Circle Films, The Media Development and Diversity Agency (MDDA) and the Cape Town Film Commission on the 11-12 March, 2011. We urge you to look at the full programme attached which we believe will be of great practical benefit to film makers seeking to reinvent their way of operating in the ever-changing context in which we are working today.

Specifically, we advise you to attend the workshops on Financing Content and Alternative Distribution Models which we believe will enhance independent producers’ capacity to finance and distribute their own content in partnership with CTV.

Should you wish to attend the whole event or part thereof please RSVP

We look forward to this long overdue opportunity to engage with the television production industry.

Kind regards,

Thabo Bopape
