Angola: IACAM runs scriptwriting course as part of forthcoming Luanda Film Festival


Over 30 theatre and cinema artists are attending a script writing course, being held in Luanda, from September 13 to November 15 2010, promoted by the Angolan Institute of Audiovisuals and Multimedia Cinema (IACAM).

The course is being held in IACAM by national teachers like, writers Manuel Rui, Luís Kandjimbo and Paulo Matuquesa, who are speaking about the history of cinema and introduction to guiding, researching and laboratory and composition.

To the director of the Angolan Institute of Cinema, Audiovisual and Multimedia (IACAM), Pedro Ramalhoso, the promotion aims to help the artists, in particular, those who write for cinema, in order to have enough knowledge about the activity they do.

“Through this training course, we want to show how important is the guiding as basis to produce a good film. In many films we watch in the country we have been seeing a lot of debilities in terms of guide writing, reason why the Institute assumed the commitment to help the artists to increase their skills on it”, he mentioned.

This course is also under the umbrella of the third International Luanda Festival Cinema (FIC-Luanda 2010) to be celebrated in November.
