Local production trends: what collaboration?

As demand for local content rises across Africa, most of the key players in the sector are going into local production. Yet, the industry is not evolving as rapidly as one would hope, producers, filmmakers and talents are there, but the funding is not. Collaboration with international players seems required to build a long-lasting African film industry.

TELECOMS: A new platform for audiovisual services

The consumption of audiovisual content is no longer solely on television but is also increasingly via the Internet. While internet access remains limited and expensive in most African countries, connectivity is gaining in accessibility and quality with the development of 4G, fibre networks and more affordable offerings. To support these investments, telecom operators are increasingly including content in their development strategy: payment methods, data-video bundle and customer loyalty. The African streaming sector is dominated by free international platforms like YouTube and Facebook, but the local market is starting to structure:


  • What roles do operators play in the deployment of audiovisual services in their markets?
  • What business models can be implemented to deliver an attractive online content offering?
  • What kind of partnerships can be developed to facilitate cooperation between operators, producers and distributors of local content?
