A website based community of trained subtitlers and film translators, working to and from, African indigenous languages. This is the first of its kind. The network provides a place for film and media content producers, and distributors, to search for subtitlers to work with, who can help to get their work viewed by audiences across Africa. The network is a platform to facilitate direct contact between film and video content makers, producers and distributors and subtitlers. All subtitlers listed have been trained within the author's Colours of the Alphabet indegnious film subtitle training programme. The network’s development was supported by the ESRC (Economic and Social Research Council), and led by Dr Alastair Cole from Newcastle University, and Professor Nick Higgins at The University of the West of Scotland. The network was developed through partnerships with Amara, AfriDocs, Screen Language, Lansdowne Productions and Tongue Tied Films.
