As part of our Culture Leads The Way project, Selam trained youths from Addis Ababa, Amhara, Tigray, Oromia and SNNPR regional states on capacity building and film production. Following the training, selected project participants with technical support of professionals produced more than 11 documentary films by different local languages (Amharic, Affan oromo and Tigrigna.) The film has been in the making since our investment in film education begun with Culture Leads The Way and gives an account for it.
The documentary film, which is done by youths, focuses on social issues, job creation, environment and different ideas. The film is now ready to be released with complete editing and branding work, on selam’s website and different regional televisions.
The capacity building activity is part of the project Culture Leads the Way funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency, Sida
