The Zimbabwe Television and Film School of Southern Africa has intensified training of filmmakers in anticipation of high demand of film content once the digitisation exercise currently underway is completed. After digitisation, the country is expecting to have 12 television channels. So far, the Zimbabwe Television and Film School of Southern Africa has held workshops in various parts of the country teaching aspiring filmmakers the core subjects of film such as production, script writing and cinematography.

The school's director, Dr Rino Zhuwarara, told journalists on the sidelines of a training workshop in Harare recently that although they were facing challenges, they had managed to train a significant number of filmmakers.
