GLCPL/ ZIFF Producer Panel

Great Lakes Creative Producers Lab (GLCPL) will present a moderate session on creative producing and co-production within the East African context at this year’s edition of the festival.

They are planning to utilize their current mentors and other East African producers in a hybrid event that will shed light on the current landscape of film and future of producing within the region. We believe that this panel will provide a space for engagement amongst established and emerging regional producers of African descent.

GLCPL will also take this opportunity to launch the next call of applications for their second edition of the Creative Producers Lab


  1. Keynote speech from one of the mentors
  2. 2nd Keynote speech from a selected speaker
  3. Panel Session with proposed speakers
  4. Capturing the Journey of one of alumni of GLCPL (Producer; Heddwyn Kyambadde from Uganda)
  5. Q&A, plus closing remark & launch call for the next Creative Producers Lab


The East Africa Screen Collective (EASC) is a coalition of companies and organizations advocating for narrative sovereignty in the screen-based sectors (TV, film and digital) in Eastern Africa. The collective was formed after meetings among the founding members at the 2020 European Film Market and has continued working largely remotely over the past two years.

They act as a collective voice for companies and creators in the screen sector in East Africa and are focused on empowering East African creators to own and control their IP and to finance, produce and distribute their content and their work is grounded in data, community consultation, research-driven and is evidence-based.

They importantly engage with governments, stakeholders and other industry actors on shared solutions and policy recommendations. We are pleased to have the collective at ZIFF 2022 for our 25th anniversary and to have the first in person meeting for the collective happen at this auspicious occasion.
