The Anciff Women in Focus Mentorship provides Eight female filmmakers from Ghana with projects in development to be paired with an executive mentor to prepare for and guide their market experience to progress their careers and projects. Participants will discover why making media equitable and women on screen matter, who and what is making it happen, and what steps they can make with their careers and projects to support the mandate. Mentees will also receive the opportunity to meet with a mentor following the workshop to discuss how they can further the gender equality and diversity mandate with their projects.
