The Commission will also promote and support training and developmental issues relating to the film industry of South Africa whereby the offer will be matched by the service and will satisfy the transformation objectives of South Africa and its government.
Based in Cape Town, the South African Film Commission will support and compliment the work of the following:
- South African Department of Trade and Industry (DTI);
- MICT SETA;
- National Lotteries Board;
- National Film and Video Foundation;
- KZN Film Commission;
- Durban Film Office,
- Cape Town Film Commission;
- Zulu Coast Film Office;
- Other bodies integral to the film industry in South Africa.
The South African Film Commission is registered with the South African Chamber of Commerce and is a Member of the Association of Film Commissioners International, which establishes international best practice for commissions and guides their structure and mandates. The Commission is now one of 350 Commissions throughout the world and one of only 3 registered in South Africa. Organizations with their logo or presence on the SAFC website will thus be part of an international network, which means they will be the first port of call for international productions looking to partner with local companies.
