NFVF Public Consultations on the Definition of South African Film

The NFVF has been in the process of drafting criteria of assessment for South African films and co-productions. The exercise is intended to set qualifying criteria for what constitutes a South African film and official co-productions.

The criteria has introduced a point system that takes into account a number of key elements including creative, craft and technical contributions. Producers will be required to ensure that their films meet the required points for qualification. In December 2010 the NFVF published the film criteria and made a call for industry submissions and subsequently received a submission from the Independent Producers Organisation (IPO). The NFVF has taken into account some of the IPO proposals and has revised the original criteria accordingly.

To take the industry consultation process further, the NFVF will be holding public consultations in the Gauteng, Western Cape, Eastern Cape and Kwa-Zulu Natal provinces.

The consultations will be held as follows:

* Cape Town- 18 August 2011 at the Upper Eastside Hotel
* Port Elizabeth- 19 August 2011 at the Port Elizabeth Opera House
* Durban- 23 August 2011 at the Royal Hotel
* Johannesburg- 25 August 2011 at the NFVF Auditorium

Copies of the IPO Submission and NFVF Regulations can be downloaded from the links below:

Interested organisation or individuals who would like to make oral presentations can email Mawande Seti on or by 11 August 2011.
