DANS LE MONDE DU JEU NUMÉRIQUE ET DES MÉDIAS IMMERSIFS EN AFRIQUE  //  INTERMEDIARIES IN THE DIGITAL GAMES & IMMERSIVE MEDIA SECTORS IN AFRICA

By Fak’ugesi African Digital Innovation Festival & Wits School of the Arts, supported by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and Goethe Institut in Nairobi & Dakar

About the DigiIntermediaries Bootcamp & What to Expect: 

This is a unique bootcamp aimed less at training and more at claiming and framing – finding ways to sustainably grow the Digital Creative Industries in Africa and framing the roles, needs and ecosystem of intermediaries in the digital gaming and immersive media sectors.  

The bootcamp will be an intensive view of intermediary work for the Digital Games and Immersive media sectors. This will be done through providing the participants with an opportunity to participate in modules that focus on: 

  1. Understanding the Value Chain 
  2. Monetization & Customers, including new & emergent streams. 
  3. Partnerships, Content & IP 
  4. Mobilising Governments, Policy & Advocacy

The modules will be led by a number of well known and dynamic industry experts, speaking on their work and experiences, and engaging discussion on the gaps, opportunities and difficulties. 

The bootcamp programme includes multiple networking opportunities, for intermediaries and industry professionals in Africa and abroad for the digital games and immersive media market. 

There will be an opportunity to submit proposals for a funding pitch, selected participants will attend a proposal mentorship and pitch training focus, and will be given an opportunity to present their intermediary based projects to multiple investors, platforms and festivals. From the pitch 3 will be selected for commissions via Fak’ugesi Festival.

Important Dates:

  • DigiIntermediaries Bootcamp: 4 -6 & 12 -15 October (between 1 & 2 hrs a day only)
  • Proposal Mentorship & Pitch Training: 18 – 21 October
  • DigiIntermediaries Pitch: 22 October

En savoir plus sur le Bootcamp DigiIntermediaries :

Il s’agit d’un bootcamp (atelier intensif) unique qui vise moins à former qu’à revendiquer et à encadrer : trouver des moyens pour développer durablement l’industrie de la création numérique en Afrique et définir les rôles, les besoins et l’écosystème des intermédiaires dans les secteurs des jeux numériques et des médias immersifs. 

Le bootcamp apportera une vision intensive du travail d’intermédiaire dans les secteurs des jeux numériques et des médias immersifs. Pour ce faire, les participants auront l’occasion de participer à quatre modules axés sur les thèmes suivants :

  1. Comprendre la chaîne de valeur
  2. Monétisation et clients, y compris les flux nouveaux et émergents.
  3. Production, contenu et propriété intellectuelle
  4. Mobilisation des gouvernements, politique et plaidoyer

Les modules seront animés par un certain nombre d’experts reconnus et dynamiques du secteur qui parleront de leur travail et de leurs expériences, et engageront des discussions sur les lacunes, les opportunités et les difficultés.

Le programme du bootcamp comprend de multiples opportunités de mise en réseau, pour les intermédiaires et les professionnels du secteur du marché des jeux numériques et des médias immersifs en Afrique et à l’étranger.

Après avoir eu la possibilité de soumettre des propositions, les participants sélectionnés assisteront à une séance de mentorat et de formation à l’argumentaire. Ils pourront aussi présenter leurs projets d’intermédiaires à plusieurs investisseurs, plateformes et festivals. Trois projets seront sélectionnés et donneront lieu à des commandes par le biais du festival Fak’ugesi.

Rendez-vous importants :

  • Bootcamp DigiIntermediaries : 4 -6 et 12 -15  (entre 1 et 2 heures par jour uniquement)
  • Mentorat de proposition et formation au pitch : octobre du 18 au 21
  • Pitch DigiIntermediaries : octobre 22
