Welcome to CADR'A F.I.L.M.S., an independent training center for audio-visual TV production in the course of incorporation, in Bonendalé, a village close to Douala/Cameroon.
Notwithstanding the fact that since 1990 an era of liberalization in social communication in Cameroon opened officially, up to now – almost two decades later - the civil society has still no resources, no equipment to break the monopoly of state propaganda.
Starting back in 1999 we formed a number of young professionals for the sector which is more and more expanding - audio-visual TV production by implementing the method “learning by doing” and working in highly successful Cameroonian TV productions like JUST FOR FUN und CITÉ CAMPUS.
Since 2003 F.I.L.M.S. is supporting the approach of creative work, education, production and broadcast. By establishing CADR'A F.I.L.M.S. as a training and production center we facilitate a communicative and esthetically innovative approach, which will aid effectively to overcome ethnic barriers and convey an image of strong citizenship and establishing CADR'A F.I.L.M.S. as a center of regional importance for West and Central Africa.
In late 2007 we started the production of the second Cameroonian Sitcom RETROUVAILLES BAR CHEZ NOUS, which is broadcasted and gaining popular success. We still have a long way to go and invite technicians, young people with a degree for TV production or related studies, experienced professionals worldwide to be part of our training efforts in Bonendalé on the banks of the Wouri estuary.
Location: Douala, Cameroon
