This project is finished
In 2013, CFI launched the The Afrique au féminin competition, in conjunction with Canal + Afrique, with a view to selecting young female African directors. Two writing workshops and production support helped them to shoot their documentaries, which were then broadcast on Canal+ Afrique.
In 2017 and 2018, CFI renewed its support for African fiction, to mobilise the continent's best female talents in the field of writing, assisting them in the design of a television series with the Talents de femmes [Best Female Talents] project. The series "Miss Jella, l'envoûtée" [Miss Jella, the bewitched] tells the story of a young "repat" who has left life in Paris behind and returned to the country, and will be filmed during the first half of 2019.
