MultiChoice Namibia has launched the MultiChoice Talent Factory (MTF) online portal at its headquarters in Windhoek.

The online portal is the third touch point of the initiative after the launch of three regional MTF Academies in West, East and Southern Africa.

The MTF portal makes part of the investment MultiChoice has made to improve the quality and support the production of local content and storytelling across the continent.

According to the director, Cheryl Uys-Allie, the MTF portal will serve both seasoned professionals and aspiring talent in Africa’s film and TV industry.

“With increasing cross continental coverage, filmmakers are looking for networks beyond their own borders.”

“As a producer in Nigeria, it is exciting to know it is possible to co-produce in Angola for example with access to local talent and production partners. The Portal is made for mobile and is therefore accessible to any filmmaker anywhere in the world,” she said.

MultiChoice is an Africa’s leading entertainment company, which create and distribute content through Direct To Home, Digital Terrestrial Television and online video entertainment services.
