#TogetherForTheArts

The outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic has seen the South African film industry face unprecedented challenges. In response to this, a proposal by the Department of Sports, Arts and Culture (DSAC) to administer the process of sector recovery and employment creation, has been finalised and will be overseen by the National Film and Video Foundation (NFVF) and the National Arts Council (NAC).

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)
