Master the business of filmmaking with an award-winning casting director and producer

What does it take to create a compelling film that resonates with audiences and peers in the film industry? How do you find your perspective? Besides talent, what does it take to make it in the global film industry?

Join the Africa No Filter Academy Presents: The Business of Filmmaking masterclass for a deep dive into the world of movies. It will be presented by Victoria Thomas. She is the director, producer, and founder of the Republic of Story.

Thomas will share expertise gained from her experience as a filmmaker, researcher, and lecturer. You find out how to find your voice as a storyteller and get practical tools to help you navigate every step of the film value chain.

She is passionate about narratives that explore the experiences of people of African descent, and most recently worked as a factual producer and director on the Queen Cleopatra series on Netflix.

Thomas is a Course Director and lecturer in the entertainment value chain and law across the value chain on the MA International Film Business at London Film School, a lecturer in Producing at South Bank University and an External Examiner on the MA Producing at Aberystwyth University.

She will be hosted by Natasha Kimani, Head of Research and Partnerships at Africa No Filter.
