2017 is a time of optimism across francophone Africa which has witnessed a steadily growing middle-class. Pay-Tv subscription numbers continue to rise, and some countries stand out with progressive legislations, ambitious public broadcasters and private producers/distributors investing heavily in new projects. This session will focus on 3 important subjects namely 1) Francophone Africa buying content from Anglophone Africa, 2) Co-producing between Francophone and Anglophone Africa as well as 3) selling Francophone content into the Anglophone market.
