Make films from A to Z in Africa
Our goal is to achieve independency of African films.
Because we believe that to create images and representation of oneself, is a necessary
condition for: one's dignity, for the consideration that populations have of themselves, for
their possible emancipation.
To achieve this independence, we must acquire the tools and skills that would allow the
production of films from-- A to Z, then their distribution.
Located in the facilities of the Socio-Cultural Center of Grand Dakar, the Yennenga Center
became the official Cinema pole of the city of Dakar.
• A two-year free training program in postproduction which will lead to the first generation of
trained professionals of West Africa ready to be lead technicians in their areas.
Since October 21, we are hosting 28 students coming from 6 different African countries. This
first cohort studying 3 specialities Image Editing, Sound Editing - Mixing and Color Grading.
Some of these students will be taught to become trainers for the next cohort.
• An educational program where we host workshops, debates, films screening for all sorts
It offers a program articulated around social issues intended to fuel the debate. Our goals
are here to use cinema as a tool to reflect on ourselves and to each other and to give the floor
to the local population to discuss political, socio-cultural or all sorts of topics. The programs
are organized as regular gatherings, which combine the screening of films with meetings,
debates, and all kinds of events.
Special attention is given to young audience by giving workshop on image education and
short film screening.
