The Durban FilmMart (DFM), Africa’s leading film market, has announced that it will be established as an independent institute functioning as a Non-Profit Organisation ahead of its 11th edition in 2020. “This had always been part of the business plan of Durban FilmMart since its establishment in 2009,” explains Toni Monty, Head of the Durban Film Office and the DFM. “With the continued growth and expansion of the initiative, as well as the continuous increase in numbers of delegates, and submissions of projects in development, which have this year, surpassed any other in our 11-year history, the current structure has been outgrown, and sustainable long term strategies now need to be implemented.”
