This year’s staging of the event will be held under the theme: “Local Content, International Value”. Leaders in the field of television and film will be engaged in riveting discussions about their work in the local media landscape and the type of international value it adds.

Director of CARIMAC, Dr Livingston White, noted that “the event is expected to be stimulating and informative, and attendees can expect additional insight into the creative process of some of their favourite local television shows and the creative minds behind them.”
He continued, “Persons will get a chance to compare local television productions, see how they measure up with international content and learn how locals can position themselves on the international stage”.
