Connecting Key and Emerging Players Driving Entertainment Content Business Across East Africa and Beyond

DISCOP Zanzibar is an entertainment content market and co-production forum with a focus on business in Eastern Africa.

DISCOP Zanzibar takes place during East Africa’s largest and most respected film festival. The Zanzibar International Film Festival, going into its 22nd year attracts filmmakers, industry professionals, media and film lovers to Stone Town for 9 days of film, music, and culture.

The East African film industry is booming. Tanzania’s answer to Nollywood, popular and widely distributed Bongo Movies have revolutionized the East African film industry. Major film studio facilities have sprung up in Dar es Salaam and throughout Kenya. East Africa has become not just a desired location for international productions, but also the hub of a booming local film industry.

Just like other DISCOP markets, DISCOP Zanzibar 2019 will offer full-service meeting organization sup­port mixing matchmaking technology with old-fashioned customer service. We recognize that buyers deserve better than uncontrolled and overwhelming networking experiences.

REGISTRATION WILL OPEN JANUARY 15 2019

This is an opulent monument to Islamic architecture and indigenous craftsmanship. It blends right into Zanzibar’s rich tradition of ornate furnishings and Arabian style.
