Provincial Response to the current financial crisis
The Gauteng Film Commission is currently compiling a report on behalf of the Provincial
Government outlining the impacts of the current financial crisis on the local film and TV
In particular we require any information regarding the following:
- Any reported company failures/ closures
- Any reported job losses
- Any reported cancellations of productions and related production volume impacts
- Any other reported impacts that can be directly or indirectly ascribed to the current crisis (whether as a result of the global credit crunch or the crisis at the SABC).
In addition, we would welcome inputs from organisations regarding the type of support that
they would like to see from Province and the Gauteng Film Commission during this period in
order to protect industry jobs in the short term while creating new jobs in the medium to longer
This information will be used to fashion a more cohesive response from the Gauteng Film
Commission as well as allow us to lobby the provincial government for greater sector support
during the crisis.
Should you require any additional information please do not hesitate to contact us.
Your assistance will be greatly appreciated.
