Afrik TV is a pan-African press agency aiming to broadcast news reports from Africa. These reports made by African correspondents only cater to African and international news channels.
Every week, Afrik TV offers CFI’s TV partners a short news programme averaging 5 minutes.
The themes are varied: society, healthcare, culture and sport.
CFI also participates in the training course for correspondents from Afrik TV in Africa.
In 2010 and 2011, CFI supported Afrik TV in the organisation of training workshops for TV reporters in their network of journalists across the continent.
International Council of French-Speaking Broadcasting Corporations
(CIRTEF) – Belgique
CFI and the International Council of French-Speaking Broadcasting Corporations (CIRTEF) work together on various training projects for professionals in African media.
The partnership between these two institutions regularly involves training on the production of cultural reports, and society subjects.
In 2010, the 50 years of independence project was born, for which CFI supported the CIRTEF in the production of portraits of African personalities having striven for independence. In 2007, CFI and the CIRTEF helped seven TV channels from four African countries (Benin, Burkina Faso, Mali and Chad) with the directing of a magazine on children’s rights Droit dans les yeux (Eye contact).
Every year CFI organises a seminar on the fringe of the SEFOR with programmes for its TV partners from French-speaking Africa.
CFI has partnered this NGO since 2010.
In 2010, CFI teamed up with the AFP Foundation to lead a training course in Bangkok for young Burmese journalists, as well as a training course for journalists from Albanian press agency ATA. In 2011, CFI joined in the project to set up a training course for journalists working for the press, TV and radio instigated by the AFP and the UNDP in Lebanon.
Specialising in economic and social news, People TV offers a weekly 30-min programme to CFI’s TV partners with BUSINESS Africa
and INITIATIVE Africa
. Both programmes are produced in French and English with an editorial line projecting an image of “Africa on the move”, contrasting with the usual African clichés.
People TV also directs series of 5-min news reports on the themes of healthcare, education and culture for newscasts and magazines on African TV channels.
