ADM FILM MAKERS' GRADUATION CEREMONY

​MEDIA INVITE

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

ADM FILM MAKERS' GRADUATION CEREMONY 

 

ADM HEADQUARTERS - THURSDAY, 03 FEBRUARY 2022

 

In line with its future-forward vision, known as "Vision 2058: Building a Smart District", Amathole District Municipality’s (ADM) Local Economic Development unit, under Spatial Planning and Economic Development directorate promotes Film and Television development as one of the key economic growth and development initiatives in promoting and marketing the District.

 

With its existing film development structures and key stakeholders, ADM is currently facilitating and coordinating film sector support on capacity building, resource mobilization and commercialization of film production, following its recent involvement, together with its Development Agency (ASPIRE), in the production of “The Dam”, an internationally revered film series production indicative of the district’s unwavering commitment to develop a sustainable local film sector.

 

Through the Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP) Social Sector, ADM has partnered with two local film production entities, namely  Amasomi Media & Video Production as well as Tshintsha Ma Afrika to establish a local film development skills transfer programme with accredited outcomes.

 

This initiative is necessitated by the need for provision of film development technical skills targeted at emerging film makers across the District. 

 

Reflecting on this initiative, ADM Executive Mayor Cllr Nceba Ndikinda said “It is through this program that a multiplying effect is envisaged to gradually mobilise and promote ADM emerging film makers towards the production of commercial production. It is through participation in EPWP initiatives that an improvement of general livelihoods of local communities can be improved and attraction of youth to employment can be fulfilled”. 

 

The assistance of one of partner stakeholders, Tshintsha Ma Africa ensured that formal outcome of an assessment and validation process are proven by accredited certificates which alone can open doors for our participants.

 

The skills transfer program included the following inputs and learning outcomes:

 

·        Post-production

·        Pre-production

·        Production administration

·        Film directing

·        Lighting

·        Sound

MEDIA STATEMENT

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

ADM COUNCIL RESOLVES TO INSTITUTE INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION

 

 

ADM HEADQUARTERS - MONDAY, 31 JANUARY 2022 

 

Amathole District Municipality (ADM) council has resolved to authorize the Executive Mayor to commission an independent law firm to investigate the incident that occurred in ADM offices on 24 January 2022. 

 

This after the Executive Mayor conducted a preliminary investigation on the disturbing and humiliating incident that saw ADM Member of the Mayoral Committee Cllr Nanziwe Fatima Rulashe being dragged in the municipal building by the security guards and the now suspended Acting Head of Security. 

 

The law firm will be given 30 days from the date of appointment to uncover all facts surrounding the incident and submit its recommendations to council to deliberate on an implementation plan of the resolutions. 

 

Having read the reports I received I have proposed to council that the matter necessitates further investigation in order to do due diligence and ensure that no stone is left unturned in this embarrassing and unfortunate incident.
