Organized events such as the “AMVCA Runway Show” on Sundays are also scheduled for the week; Young Filmmakers Day, with film screenings and panel discussions by students from the MultiChoice Talent Factory academy, on Monday.

This will be followed by the Africa Magic Content Marketplace Workshop on Tuesday and the Digital Content Creator Brunch on Wednesday. The Fête de la culture et de la gastronomie is scheduled for Thursday, while the gala for the nominees will take place on Friday.
