CHIREDZI – The Zimbabwe Film and Television School for Southern Africa has held a four-day training programme for film and content producers in Chiredzi and this is the first for any district in the country.
The crash-training programme which will cover the whole country is in preparation for the digitalisation programme which will see ZBC having six high definition channels with other HD channels reserved for independent producers.
The training programmes are funded by the Ministry of Information, Media and Broadcasting Services.
Digitalisation will create a demond for more content and this will result in a big challenge for local producers who may fail to meet the demand.
Speaking during the training held at Chiredzi Christian College Zimbabwe Film and Television School of Southern Africa director, Dr Rino Zhuwarara said local content can only be achieved if the people are trained and motivated and the trainings will be carried out thorough-out the country.
He also said that digitalization will create a lot of employment in the film industry.
 "We are holding these trainings so that we can impart knowledge to film and content producers on four aspects which are cinematography, producing, editing and script writing. As you know the country is undergoing digitalization which will see the increase in television stations and all that means we will need more content producers.
"We are trying to launch trainings that cover the whole nation as a crash programme because digitalization is going to provide big challenges to do with local content. The pressure now is on the generation of local Government that can actually meet the demand," said Zhuwarara.
