According to Mayisela, six successful filmmakers will be handed grant cheques valued at R250 000 as part of the City’s development programmes, facilitated by the Durban Film Office.

In addition, there will be a Kiddiepreneur section which will instill a culture of entrepreneurship at a young age. Children will get a chance to participate in different activities.
