Economic Impact Assessment Study Launch

The National Film & Video Foundation (NFVF) commissioned a research study to identify and quantify the economic impact of the South African film industry. The study focused on filming activities within South Africa, either wholly or partly, including foreign and co-productions produced in South Africa.

In the spirit of re-building a robust and equitable industry, the NFVF invites you to the Economic Impact Assessment Study Launch, as a means to collectively understand, reflect and engage on the industry’s current economic impact and the potential for growth.
