Each year the International North South Media Forum brings together experts from the media, financial sector, development and politics. Each edition analyses a topic that holds an important stake for the future. In 2004 we addressed the future of oil, in 2005 China and its development and in 2006 global warming. In 2007 and 2008 the Forum addressed India and its emerging role as a global leader first in Geneva and then in Jaipur, inaugurating our new two-year formula.
The 2009 and 2010 editions address “The Global Food Crisis : causes, effects and solutions”, and the related themes of agriculture, global warming, trade and hunger.
The 2010 edition will propose a wide range of activities to achieve a better understanding of the different problems and issues at stake:

Founded in 2002 by film producer and director Mr Jean-Marie BARBE who, more than 20 years ago, created the festival “Les Etats Généraux du Film Documentaire de Lussas” (France), AFRICADOC is a programme for the development of African documentary cinema.. The aim of Africadoc is to develop, together with all African countries, a training network to meet the need for a new generation of documentaries filmmakers, and to set up a network of professionals working in the documentary world.
SERIES “LUMIÈRE D’AFRIQUE”
In 7 years of existence, Africadoc has been supervising many film projects, from conception to distribution. With a view to reinforcing their identity, these remarkable films have been gathered in the Lumière d’Afrique Collection, which acts as a production “label”. Every year, the serie integrates ten new documentary films resulting from the writing residencies and from the Tënk Encounters.
Africadoc is also a pan-African documentary network carried by young professionals (authors and producers) and their desire to create. As such, various Africadoc associations have been created in several African countries (Togo, Mali, Mauritanie, Niger, Cameroun, Senegal, Burkina Faso) making it possible to structure the Africadoc network, to relay the programme locally as well as to ensure the long-lasting anchorage of the network of
PROJECT FOR SOUTH AFRICA
Africadoc intends to set up for two weeks Workshop/Writing Residencies in South Africa (Johannesburg) in April 2010 for a dozen South-African documentaries filmmakers. By the end of the session, 5/6 of the projects will be selected to attend the Tënk Encounters wich will take place in Senegal in June 2010.

Ânûû-rû âboro, définition du cinéma signifie : l'ombre de l'homme, en langue paicî
Notre époque est celle des médias de masse, dominés par les grands groupes audiovisuels, au service des seules logiques marchandes. Il est juste et bon de leur opposer d'autres manières de faire, de filmer, de regarder et d'entendre. Changer de logique c'est changer de pratique. Les spectateurs sont d'abord des citoyens, des hommes et des femmes responsables, qui ne peuvent être traités comme d'éternels mineurs.
Pour les peuples qui se lèvent dans le monde et affirment leur dignité, leur histoire, leurs valeurs, il est vital de pouvoir faire des films documentaires hors des modèles dominants, de les faire circuler, de les échanger avec d'autres. C'est à cela que sert un festival comme Ânûû-rû âboro.
