  Mzansi Magic calls for movie ideas to film
Mzansi Magic has put out this call for filmmakers ...

Mzansi Magic is calling for project submissions on low budget feature film projects from KwaZulu-Natal to be developed into 60 to 90 minute films and aired on the channel.

With Mzansi Magic’s focus still firmly set on boosting the local film industry, the channel has collaborated with the Durban Film Office (DFO) on this project and the DFO will facilitate the call for submissions.

The DFO is the film industry development arm of the City of Durban, operating under the auspices of Economic Development Unit of eThekwini Municipality.

Mzansi Magic will consider commissioning 10 projects for development based on the caliber of projects submitted.

Channel Manager's Lebone Maema and Nirvana Singh, Commissioning Editor say: “Selected projects will have the opportunity to hone their scriptwriting skills by participating in script development workshops facilitated by Yizo, Yizo 1 and 2 co-creator/writer and Jerusalema associate producer, Mtutuzeli Matshoba and stand a chance to be made into a Mzansi Magic feature movie”.

Filmmakers should submit the following in order for their projects to be considered:

1. Title page
2. 1-3 page synopsis
3. Complete screenplays will be a definite advantage.

The title page of the project must show the Story Title, the name of the author, author's ID and Contact details (Please do not decorate the title page)

Submissions must be in Mzansi Magic offices by 16h00, 15 July 2011.

Please submit to:

Nirvana.Singh@mnet.co.za and Moloisi.Mabeba@mnet.co.za

Or mail to

Magic Centre Reception
137 Bram Fischer Ave, Ransburg, 2194, Johannesburg, Gauteng
