MARCHING TOWARDS ANNECY & AFRICA 2020 (PART 1): Since AAN is a pro-profit, talent-driven social enterprise, let’s start our trip with some of our 2019 social analytics.
At Annecy/MIFA 2019, AAN announced that they will be launching the first African-owned linear kids’s animation & pop culture thematic channel.
PRESS CONFERENCE @ DISCOP: Annecy/MIFA announced at 2019 event that Africa will be territory of honour in 2020 parallel to the Africa 2020 Creative Season.
Africa has a wealth of untapped human capital that only requires training and/or mentorship to unlock its full potential.
Access to Audience:
To procure finance for Afro-centric animated content requires access to audience across multiple territories or countries in Africa.
Once human capital is unlocked via skills development and with access to audience, investors will more likely finance projects in Africa with a potential ROI.
