THE DIGITAL FILM SCHOOL An online learning platform for filmmaking
- alone or in a group, for guided or independent study

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.”

COME, I’LL SHOW YOU

A FILM SCHOOL FOR ANYONE, ANYWHERE

The few film schools located on the African continent are usually found in big cities, and their programmes are often prohibitively expensive. But digital learning is on the rise, and Africa is on the forefront of the trend. With almost half the population under the age of 18, young people in countries across Africa are more digitally connected than ever, and they are ushering in new possibilities for an increasingly online world.

&nsbp;
Together with our partners African University College of Communication (AUCC) and YMCA Ghana WELTFILME has teamed up with Deutsche Welle Akademie to develop an online learning platform for filmmaking and its associated practices. Young filmmakers in countries across Africa can use the platform to gain vocational training and accreditation from wherever they are.
&nsbp;
THE DIGITAL FILM SCHOOL not only centers on the African perspectives on film and filmmaking, but also takes an innovative, practical approach to learning that connects instructors and students beyond national borders.

We are currently developing modules on screenwriting, documentary films, and film production. Our goal is to expand THE DIGITAL FILM SCHOOL with courses that offer professional accreditation in all areas of filmmaking, including directing, camera cinematography, sound, editing, and more.
