Update on the Development of the South African Film Criteria

The NFVF has been in the process of developing the South African Film Criteria since 2010. The development process began when the NFVF initiated desktop research on the establishment of the criteria, the methodology utilized included amongst other things international benchmarking against Ireland, Canada, Unite Kingdom and Australia.

The research also acknowledged already existing legislation and policies within the film industry.

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). Thereafter, public consultations were held in Cape Town, Port Elizabeth, Durban and Johannesburg. The aim of the consultations was to engage industry and solicit input regarding the criteria.

A Findings Report was compiled for Council submission. In December 2011, Council approved the findings report and the recommendations that were made. These recommendations have been translated into the latest film criteria. The NFVF will be holding feedback sessions with the aim of discussing and presenting the film criteria. The feedback sessions will take place in Cape Town, Port Elizabeth, Durban and Johannesburg at end of April. The actual dates will be communicated at a later date.
