They are being televised in different languages at prime time and are suitable for family viewing. Each stand alone film is 24 minutes long.The project is the largest locally developed prevention communication programme in Africa, developing and unearthing new talent in the film industry. Filmmakers and writers across the region attended an intensive eighteen-month accredited training course in scriptwriting and drama film production in an effort to make films that are said to break new ground and both entertain and educate. Quality scripts with dramatic story lines have been researched and tested with the target audience.
