WELTFILME is a non-profit dedicated to the medium of film in cooperative projects with developing countries. Through workshops, film productions, and screenings, our participants build a vocational future while strengthening the film industry in their home countries.

TEACHING AND LEARNING FILM

Together with our network of local partners, we train future film instructors through our “Training the Trainers” programme.

MAKING FILMS

Our participants produce their own films. Practical training, tangible outcome.

SCREENING FILMS

Whether in pop-up cinemas, on television, at festivals, or streaming online — millions of people will see the films our participants create.

Slide - Mahzouba Maya Faal, The Gambia “In Africa, there are a lot of stories that don’t get told. And many voices that don’t get heard.”
Slide - Matilda Dogbatsey, Ghana “I don’t have a university degree. My WELTFILME certificate is my professional qualification.” Slide - G-Othello Zordyu, Liberia “In Liberia, there’s no major TV station, no local film industry and, above all, no educational opportunities for young people to learn film. I want to inform and train the next generation.” Slide - Luther N. Mafalleh, Liberia “WELTFILME gave me the confidence to do things
in my own way.”
Slide - Luther N. Mafalleh, Liberia “Film and television are such powerful tools for drawing
the public’s attention to
important social issues.”
Slide - Luther N. Mafalleh, Liberia “WELTFILME has opened doors
for me that I didn’t even know existed.”
Slide - Fatou Ndure, The Gambia “The first days of the workshop were such an amazing experience. There was so much to take in, so many things to learn.” Slide - Alex Asare, Ghana “WELTFILME — they’re just really good. They’re wonderful people. And they’ve got to keep doing this.” Slide - Alex Asare, Ghana “Most of the media focuses only on the ugly parts of Africa — on war and disasters. I want people to see the real Africa.” Slide - Matilda Dogbatsey, Ghana “My training with WELTFILME helped me, as a woman, to assert myself in a male-dominated profession.”
