Cape Town is a quintessential melting pot of creativity, cuisine and colour. It is also home to  spectacular film locations and a booming music industry, making it the perfect setting for FAME Week Africa.

As a leading African global creative event, FAME Week Africa, returns to Cape Town from 4 to 6 September 2023 bringing the creatives, the dreamers, the magic makers, the community builders, the change makers and the trendsetters together for an inspirational experience like no other.

“FAME Week Africa is an essential destination for African and global creative professionals and celebrates the convergence of the tech, film, television, animation, and music industries,” says Martin Hiller, Portfolio Director: FAME Week Africa.

He adds, “It is important for us to provide an event for the ever-evolving cultural and artistic industries. This is why we have four dedicated spheres within FAME Week Africa, providing platforms for each sector to create, reimagine, manifest new business, learn and to engage in high level networking. The advantage of having all these events at the same time is that the learning and networking components and curated content sessions are amplified across the various disciplines ”.


The four shows that take place during FAME Week Africa are:

  • MIP Africa offers a unique experience of pre-scheduled one-to-one matchmaking that guarantees meetings between content creatives, producers, and buyers as well as sellers to support programmes, sales, and co-production partnerships. It’s a thrilling opportunity to unwrap your freshest film and television content for African and global viewers.
  • Cape Town International Animation Festival is the largest dedicated African Animation B2B event on the continent with content sessions, workshops, and dedicated networking sessions.
  • Muziki Africa is the place where music industry people meet, learn, share, talk, listen, discover, and dance under the African sky. The Muziki Africa Sync Hub plays host to 1-to-1 meetings between music publishers, music copyright holders, film and television producers and the Spotlight Sessions will introduce fresh music talent.  
  • Media & Entertainment Solutions Africa (MESA) provides a unique way to showcase your products and services to industry executives and content creators who are looking to bring their projects to life. Attended by decision makers and influencers from all areas of the film, television, and music industries, exhibiting at MESA provides you with an unrivalled platform to meet and do business with your target audience.


If you play in the creative space let your imagination become reality and join us at FAME Week Africa, 4 to 6 September 2023 in Cape Town.

“Don’t just take our word for it,” says Hiller. “We have made really strong connections which we would not otherwise have made and are in the middle of very real and promising discussions in getting our films made. I have spoken to other producers who were there and they all agree that it was terrific and that they all expect this to be a very important event in the years coming. I have also received messages from producers and creatives who were not there and they are kicking themselves for not coming,” says Robert dos Santos, Film & Commercials Director
