SA Films Overview

The film production landscape in South Africa has grown in leaps and bounds with both local and international co-productions becoming a regular offering on theatrical exhibition. The beginning of 2012 saw an unprecedented phenomenon of the top 4 box office hits being either 100% local productions or films shot in South Africa. This showed a marked increase in consumer confidence and a sure sign that the industry had matured.

The increase in film production, be it local, co-production or service production, has resulted in a much larger pool of qualified and experienced technical crews who contribute to making this industry such a hub of activity.

The NFVF’s continued persistence in ensuring filmmaker’s are trained in script-writing, script-editing and producing continues to yield positive results for the industry.
