Johannesburg, June 1st, 2016

On June 1st, DISCOP AFRICA Abidjan welcomes the launch of Digital Lab Africa, a call for projects and a platform for African talent in multimedia organised by the French Institute of South Africa, in partnership with DISCOP AFRICA and TRACE.

The objective of Digital Lab Africa is to provide a springboard for African talent in multimedia creation and to make their project happen with the support of French leading companies (studios, producers, broadcasters, distributors) such as ARTE (web creation), Okio-Studio (virtual reality), CCCP (video game), and 1D Touch/Believe Digital (digital music).

« African talent in action combined with French touch at its best, this is the very idea of Digital Lab Africa » says Frédéric Chambon, Regional Head of Media, Film & Music at the French Embassy in South Africa, and producer of DLA. He explains: “DLA is a platform dedicated to the African digital content of tomorrow. In the age of digital convergence, TV, film, music and video game content in Africa is increasingly consumed on internet and mobile phones, like everywhere else.”
