NFVF Webinar about Presidential Employment Stimulus Programme

The NFVF will be hosting a public engagement on Monday 16 November at 3pm to unpack the Presidential Employment Stimulus Programme (PESP). The session will be hosted on their Facebook & Youtube and aims to ensure that you are equipped with the right information on how to apply to be a part of the programme.

The NFVF through the Presidential Employment Stimulus Programme (PESP) is tasked to administer the process of sector recovery and employment creation for the audio-visual industry due to the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic. The programme aims to assist practitioners, companies and projects that incurred losses (actual and planned/existing, new and those that were at concept stage) during the COVID-19 lockdown period. The call also aims to support the sector through continuous skills development; focusing on the skills the sector deems scarce.

A total of R140 million will be administered by the NFVF, and allocated as follows:

Objective 1: Creation of new employment opportunities: R100 million (stream 1-3);

Objective 2: Retention of employment opportunities; R40 million (stream 4)

Further details about the PESP are available on our website (closing date 30 November 2020)
