EVENT: Mini-INPUT Johannesburg – 28 & 29.09.2018

INVITATION

The JHB Mini-INPUT will aim to talk about the current state of Television through Workshops, Screenings and Round Table Discussions.

TV Programmes which were selected, screened and debated at INPUT in New York, will be screened around themes pertinent to TV makers in South Africa today. Programmes in the interest of the Audience.

Global trends, challenges and solutions will be discussed. Also, we will be hosting a breakaway workshop session on Social Media Influencers for TV Programming.

The Mini-INPUT will be closed off with a Round Table Discussion titled The Role of Broadcasters in SA – Business as usual? hosted by Prof. viola milton. Panellists include Kate Skinner, Justine Limpitlaw, Dudetsang Makuse, Nadia Bululia and Collin Dimakatso Mashile, Chief Director Broadcasting Policy, Department of Communications.

Attending this event is crucial for independent production companies, commissioning editors, Directors, broadcasters, creatives who are shaping and working actively in the southern African television landscape as well as academics and influencers in the media landscape. This event will open the submission process for #INPUT19 – hosted by the Goethe Institut and Thai PBS in Bangkok in May 2019.

INPUT is the acronym for INternational Public Television – an annual global conference that has been running since 1976. Here, not the best – but the most discussion-worthy programmes from around the globe are screened and discussed. Originally, the conference was intended to deal with challenges that face public service television. More recently, it has become evident that globally, PSBs and commercial broadcasters face the same challenge: Providing compelling and relevant programming, in the interest of the audience.

SCREENING: Slavery Routes

The history of Black slavery covers more than 15 centuries: 1500 years of subjection, oppression and violence, but also of resistance and passion, which will be the subject of various commemorations in 2018. By celebrating the abolition of slavery in Brazil in 1888 or the liberation of slaves in British territories in 1838, the world will remember a story that concerns four continents and millions of men, women and children.

Even though the scars of this fateful period are very much present today, the stories that we tell of slavery are often incomplete or simplistic. Because the wounds haven’t yet healed, because slavery has direct consequences on the inequalities that torment our society, the four volumes of the series Slave Routes are necessary films. This approach is innovative. To our knowledge, no documentary or series has recounted the totality of Black slavery. The stakes are ambitious but imperative: to provide an objective, historical but also sensitive look at 12 centuries of a little-known story.

The Series Producer, Fanny Glissant will be present at the screening.
