Panellist guests were Terrance Khumalo from the National Film & Video Foundation (NFVF), Jeroen-Louis Martens from Embassy of the Netherlands, David Selvan- well renowned film producer, Lehlohonolo Mokhosi from the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) and the host - Shukri Toefy, CEO of The Fort.

Topics which were discussed extensively included finances contribution for film makers and production houses as to how this treat will benefit them and benefit the industry at large. The creative elements on the basis of what kind of films makes it within the global scale also were addressed. The dialogue between the panellists also took to the floor where the audience got an opportunity of asking questions.
