Seasonal Film Seminar

The Seasonal Film Seminar was first organized on the 22nd and 23rd of November 2018 in Makeni City, the headquarters of the Northern Region of Sierra Leone.

It is a capacity-building platform for filmmakers. We enhance filmmakers especially the young with the skills that help them see it and run the art of filmmaking as their careers and business that their lives depend on.

We are on the mission of making filmmakers better businesspeople that could contribute to the job market, standardization of local content and tourism.


Empowering filmmakers, helping them thrive through the challenges of filmmaking as careers and business.


Our objectives are:

  • To build the capacity of filmmakers, especially the young.
  • To support filmmakers with tools that can help them navigate the odds.
  • To enable better filmmaking in Sierra Leone.
