Ethiopian filmmakers train at Imagine Institute in Burkina Faso.
Gaston Kaboré generously welcomed six Ethiopian students at the Imagine FilmTraining Institute in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso in January – February 2009.
Supported by EFI Advisors Rod Stoneman from Huston School of Film & Digital Media and former BBC executive producer Keith Bowers, the film students produced 3 newsreels during FESPACO, the pan- African film festival held in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso last March. Fast, colourful and dynamic newsreels show the films, events, film-makers, debates, as well as the social and cultural dimensions of the festival as they took place. It was screened on television, in cinemas, in hotels and on www.dailymotion.com.
