IPO COVID Protocols Webinar 
with Iain Fourie from The Public Safety Company

The IPO included an interview with Iain Fourie in our December newsletter (read it here) but quite a lot has changed since then and we are seeing more producers heading back to work. To empower you and answer any questions you may have, we have asked Iain to spend an hour sharing his insights and suggestions for practical solutions to common challenges around COVID-19 such as:

  • Update on latest legislation and its interpretation
  • What to include in your pre-production, schedules and budgets
  • Recurring on-set challenges, eg. catering, risk factors in the different departments, etc
  • The free online training resource The Public Safety Company have developed

If you have any questions you would like covered, please forward them to administrator@ipo.org.za before Wednesday 17 February at 12 noon.

Hello,

With one month to go until International Women's Rights Day, we are writing to you today to bring you the 60 films of the Mobile Film Festival 2020, whose theme was Women's Empowerment.

The films are at your disposal free of charge, for physical or digital screenings, to illustrate your articles, websites and social networks on the occasion of this international day but also throughout the year.

The films, coming from 25 countries, are already subtitled in French, English, Spanish and Italian and published on all social platforms.

60 films from 25 countries that address major feminist issues. These films are strong, beautiful, committed, militant; they tell the story of women's rights around the world.

We would like to thank all the people who contributed to the success of this beautiful edition. First and foremost the directors who submitted a film, our magnificent 
jury presided by Agn├Ęs Jaoui, our partners who have placed their trust in us, and all the associations, media, collectives and NGOs who brought the films to life.

This collective enthusiasm enabled us to beat all our records: 1130 films received from 101 countries57% of which were made by women, and 35.5 million views.

Let's continue to bring these films to life, and to support Women's Empowerment.
