Swahili for "art house"?

Variety has news on Focus Features' new Africa First program, which will award emerging African filmmakers funding for the pre-production, production, or post-production of their short films, using local industry resources.

They'll also participate in workshops, led by Focus, that will emphasize studio development, finance, marketing, and distribution.
