Scripto Sensa is an adaptation programme of African literary works to cinema initiated by the Cameroonian filmmaker Jean-Pierre Bekolo through the production company Zili. Scripto Sensa acquires the rights to books by African authors from their publishers and invite filmmakers to choose from this catalog a work to adapt. Scripto Sensa then support the filmmakers in their adaptation project by organizing series of writing workshops with filmmakers and experts in literary adaptation to cinema. This project aims to enable African cinema to capitalize on the stories in African literature, in order not only to increase the quantity of artworks produced but also to produce quality works and make them competitive internationally.
