TALA Namibia, a mobile-based video streaming platform is launching an online festival. The festival is brought to you by a group of local producers and filmmakers in partnership with the Namibian Film Commission and Nuella TV. This will be the first Namibian online festival showcasing and celebrating Namibia’s diverse cultures, languages and creative talents as well as demonstrating Namibia’s enduring spirit of resilience.
The creative industry realised that there was a real need to create and develop a sustainable creative industry, COVID-19 really worked as a catalyst in this regard. We are proud to introduce TALA as an ideal platform for the different creative work supported and developed locally over the years. This platform has only become a reality through working together to build an enabling environment for all Namibian talents.
TALA, as a mobile-based video streaming platform, will function to provide centralized access to Namibian produced creative content. This will be creative content in the broadest form and formats, submitted by Namibian creatives from diverse backgrounds and accessible to everyone.
Submission for the festival is free and will open on 21st March, 2021 and close 4th April 2021. Go to http://talanamibia.com to submit your content.
This is an opportunity for audio/visual creatives to submit content and stand a chance to win the grand cash prize of N$30 000.
TALA Namibia Festival comes at an opportune time when creative practitioners have been struggling to exhibit and distribute their works due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
During the 7-days of the festival from 12th -19th of May, audiences will get the opportunity to watch and vote for their favorite submissions. The categories to be voted on include: fiction, documentaries, children’s content, animation, music videos, live performance videos (including stand-up comedy, theatre performances, dance, TikTok , homemade content).
