Behind the Cut
Behind the Cut are online talks led by women in the film industry and content creation spaces who will present Masterclasses on their areas of expertise.
Behind the Cut Masterclasses is an initiative led by filmmaker Nadine Cloete (Action Kommandant, Miseducation, Address Unknown) working in collaboration with creatives Eloise Kamineth, Kristen Block and Gunduzi Web Solutions.
Nadine feels there is a need for such masterclasses because emerging filmmakers often contact her for advice from how to get started to projects in development. Behind the Cut Masterclasses functions to fill this resource gap, but it is also very important that these classes be led by womxn voices.
As womxn in the industry we are highly experienced in our fields but are not seen often enough on these platforms.
These online sessions ensure all womxn continue to be heard and made visible. Speakers include voices such as Shimmy Isaacs, Shelley Barry, Zoey Black and Tshego Khanyile. Themes include acting, writing, content creation, producing etc. All classes function as resources for emerging filmmakers or even those who want to brush up on some skills.
There will be seven free virtual sessions going live every Sunday from 6th September 2020.

We thank the Department of Sports, Arts and Culture for understanding the project vision and coming on board as a funder.
