who are we3
Who Are We?

SASFED is heeding President Zuma’s call: “Together we can do more.”

We’re the most organized and unified federation that exists in the TV and film industry today.

where are we
Where Are We?

Unfortunately, we’ve been here before.

We’re dealing with the same issues today that we have over the past (at least) 10 years

“TOGETHER”, with government, with the NFVF and other relevant institutions, we can do more.

Help set the agenda for change.

Educate the government: lack of institutional memory cripples us and we have to re-educate every new administration.

Without IP we cannot move forwards to a sustainable industry

where are we1
Where Are We?

The great strides with co-production deals that currently exist.

Enabling greater access to pre-licensing deals.

Discernible increase in local content.

Frustration: how much more education of the Government do we have to do?

Failure: Private money funding of the sector


FACT: Arts and Culture is weighted LESS than other GDP contributors.


It’s important to reference historical frameworks and build from them.

Economic vs, Cultural: Don’t let economics outweigh the cultural.

DOC Bill: SASFED is for plurality of voice, independence of voice, alignment to national goals

Protect room for a non-nationalist agenda.

24 F

To enable this very important financing tool to operate effectively and efficiently is essential and urgent for the South African Film Industry, and made more urgent given the financial crisis at the SABC that is threatening the viability of the entire production sector. SASFED recognises that the current de facto inability of the film and TV industry to use 24F in its present form adversely affects thousands of workers in the sector, alongside the affected producers and is further threatening the survival of providers of ancillary services to the sector.

comment on nfvf s value charter
Comment on NFVF’s Value Charter

SASFED is generally in agreement with NFVF’s vision as set out in charter (2nd edition)

Concern: Implementation.

We embrace charter’s ambition to “build upon historical experiences”.

Our economically disastrous past year clearly illustrates that local industry practitioners need support.


SABC cannot sustain this industry alone. How can other broadcasters be brought to the party?

Which business models are we emulating, and are they appropriate for us?

What is lacking in the current biz models?

How can broadcasters help us access DTI incentives?

training transformation
Training & Transformation

Reviving the culture of apprenticeship.

We DO NOT need another film school. There is no capacity to absorb new people into the industry. Professionals have quit it for greener pastures. We need to have a sustainable industry before we can talk about a film school to feed it. .

Better access to SETA funding

Has the option of expanding NEMISA or the University of Tshwane film school and similar institutions been properly investigated?

training transformation1
Training & Transformation

There are NOT enough Black people working as editors, DOP’s, Line Producers, Engineers.

Female directors of any race.
