The Independent Producers Organisation (IPO) is a representative, national organisation of independent South African film, television and digital producers constituted to represent, protect and promote the interests and needs of producers.
Our Vision is to be recognised locally and globally as the power behind a thriving, sustainable, inclusive, widely-acclaimed and globally competitive South African film, TV and digital media production industry which celebrates and affirms our country’s diversity.
Our Mission is to represent, protect and elevate the interests of film, TV and digital media content producers and, in turn, all who work in and are suppliers to the industry, to ensure an empowered, transformed, vibrant and flourishing industry which maximises its economic contribution and job-creation potential, by effective lobbying of Government and other key stakeholders.
Always working in your best interests.
