SWAZILAND
Quick Overview
There is no film industry and little video activity in Swaziland. While many institutions have VHS video cameras, the equipment tends to be under-utilised for lack of editing facilities. Swazi TV has the only video editing facility in the country, apart from a NTSC Super VHS system with the Ministry of Agriculture. A few American and European directors have made shorts and documentaries in this small impoverished kingdom, but this does not seem to have encouraged home grown production.

TANZANIA
Quick Overview
Tanzania formerly known as Tanganyika has hardly any cinematic history of its own. In 1929 the first cinema was openened. Censorship law constituted that films could be either passed for all audiences or “non-natuve” audiences. At stake in this struggle were the criteria for determining what was suitable for the eyes of Africans in town, whose potential access to Hollywood fare was the cause of considerable anxiety in Government, both in the colonies and the metropole. After independence production was still pretty non-existant until the early nineties when production started to increase. Today Tanzania is a leading country in East African cinema. The country has a succesful video production business very much in the Nollywood mould where hundreds of cheap video productions are sold around Africa and the world. Documentaries and film shorts are starting to appear at international film festivals, but feature film production is still extremely rare. A notable exception was Maangamizi: The Ancient One in 2001. The film was a huge success and was produced by Oscar winning director Jonathan Demme.

TOGO
Quick Overview
Togo was among those African countries which flourished in filmmaking during the post independent period in West Africa but by some political strategies, Togo vanished from the African and international film industry scale. So, since 1975 filmmaking has fallen into a great lethargy. Togo has a long way to go in developing a viable film industry unlike some its West African counterparts. Like in most African countries the governmental restrictions, lack of funds and strong video competition will frustrate all efforts in creating local films. Still Togo has produced a leading female fdirector in Anne Laure Folly and documentary filmmaking has become a significant factor in Togolese cinema.

TUNISIA
Quick Overview
It is debatable whether or not one can truly make reference to a Tunisian cinema industry. Although the majority of films produced in the country are indisputably co-productions, Tunisia is striving to create a cinema of it’s own. However due to the scarcity of funding from state institutions , the evolution is slow and uncertain. Moreover Tunisian cinema seems to be a stranger in it’s own country. The unpopularity of local productions means the already sparse cinemas prefer to screen more lucrative international features. Festivals which are currently flourishing at a steady rate offer the only chance for a film to break through. That said Tunisia still boasts some of the most respected filmmakers in the region, and has produced many more films than its’ larger neighbours.

UGANDA
Quick Overview
Low key filming and video production activity in the country is to be found only in the capital from where Uganda TV transmits programmes countrywide. Like other sectors of the economy, the film industry was badly affected during the two decades of political turmoil that followed the coup by Dictator Idi Amin in 1971. Idi Amin’s regime dismantled private ownership of all sorts of media operations and subsequently killed cinemas in the major towns. recently like many East African countries there has been an increase in video production and some young and upcoming directors such as Donald Mugisha are breaking through. The Amakula Kampala festival is the biggest festival in East Africa and is really helping Uganda gain recognition in the cinematic world.

WESTERN SAHARA
Quick Overview
The Western Sahara has no official status as of yet. Morocco has annexed the country for decades now. The population mainly consists of tribal desert inhabitants. The country has no known filmmakers or any films purely to its credit. Spanish filmmakers have taken a keen interest in the plight of Western Sahara and have made several notable documentaries and fiction films.

ZAMBIA
Quick Overview
Independence in 1964 meant a free Zambia but the film industry had no government priority whatsoever. Nowadays there is practically no film industry in the country, only a few film-producing companies and no significant filmmakers. ZNBC (Zambian National Broadcasting Company), Zambia Information service (also government owned) and some private firms occasionally produce TV plays and documentaries but no feature films. 2011 was a great year for Zambian cinema. Mwansa the Great won international awards and both Zedcrew and the Carrier made by foreign filmmakers inside Zambia were also successful.

ZIMBABWE
Quick Overview
The origins of film making in Zimbabwe can be traced to initiatives in the United Kingdom, which was the colonial power over the period 1890-1979. The British government established the Colonial Film Unit at the beginning of the Second World War, in 1939, as part of a propaganda initiative directed to colonies. The unit was directed by the Ministry of Information. Its purpose was to explain the war to British subjects in the colonies and enlist their support; England’s ruling elite had great faith in the power of cinema as an instrument for persuasion when communicating with the masses, whether the working class of urban industrial England or illiterates in Britain’s African colonies. Presently Zimbabwe’s film industry is in ruins due to the economic hardships that the country has endured through the Robert Mugabe regime. Still Zimbabwe has produced notable filmmakers such as Michael Raeburn and Ingrid Sinclair.
