The Event

The Mini-INPUT will be showcasing productions screened and discussed at the INPUT 2019 conference which was held in Bangkok in May 2019.

More than 400 delegates (all TV professionals) gathered in Bangkok to discuss and showcase the state of broadcasting.

Mini-INPUTs are designed, to disseminate know-how and solutions to local broadcasting professionals and are scheduled around the world.

INPUT is not a festival. It does not showcase “the best” productions or award prizes to productions. Instead, productions that offer solutions, creative insights into the industry challenges are showcased. They form a basis of international know-how and programming exchange. Not on a platform of a marketplace – but on a platform of professional curiosity.


At the Johannesburg Mini-INPUT, broadcasting professionals, media scholars, policy makers and audience have a chance to watch and discuss 13 of the 50 productions screened at the conference. These have been carefully curated to tackle topics that are of interest of the regional stakeholders by the INPUT National Coordinator for South Africa, Henriette De Villiers and the SACOMM ExCo. Member for Screen Studies, Franc¸ois Smit. The programmes are screened in themes sessions to focus discussion around these topics.


INPUT is an organization based on volunteer engagement by professionals around the world who are supported by their own organisations. It is not steered by ideologies other than “storytelling in the interest of the audience”. It is an open platform for the exchange of programme ideas and professional know-how.


Who should attend?

INPUT is a conference aimed at TV makers and Media Scholars. Productions screened range in genre, format and audience share. It is as much a showcase of “Bread and Butter TV” as it showcases block buster fiction series or high-end documentaries. The plurality of the perspectives of the delegates at the conference is what makes INPUT a “must attend” event.


The Mini-INPUT is kindly supported by the Goethe Institut and hosted by AFDA Johannesburg (41 Frost Avenue, Braamfontein Werft) on Thursday and Friday, 24 & 25 October 2019.

Registration is free of charge, but an RSVP is essential to make sure that access to the screenings and discussions are guaranteed. Please RSVP to Simone Singh ([email protected]), stating your organization and function as well as which days you would be attending.
