This chapter traces the collaborative links between sites of cinematic activity in the Global North and Global South. The motivation for examining the values, challenges and achievements of different examples of policy-based milieu-building transnationalism on a North/South basis is threefold. First, the intent is further to expand the scope of World Cinema Studies. A second reason for drawing attention to examples of Nordic/African partnerships has to do with tendencies in small-nation Cinema Studies. The third reason for examining the partnerships in question concerns the role of human rights thinking in the context of North/South collaborations with a focus on film. The analysis presented below is based on a mix of methods. Policy documents, government strategies, grant applications, country reports, and interim as well as final reports on specific partnership programmes have been scrutinised carefully. The programmes in Mali, Burkina Faso, Uganda and Kenya were developed by Center for Culture and Development (CKU).
