SAFTAs 13 Call for entries are now open!

#SAFTAS13

As part of honouring, celebrating and rewarding talent, the National Film and Video Foundation (NFVF) an agency of the Department of Arts and Culture opens the call for the much anticipated 13th edition of the South African Film and Television Awards (SAFTAs).

The mandate of the NFVF is to administer the South African Film & Television Awards (SAFTAs) in order to celebrate, promote, highlight the excellence of local talent and encourage the growth of talent within the South African film and television industry.

The film industry is encouraged to submit their entries to www.saftasonline.co.za until the 12th of October 2018.

Please note:

  • Final decisions regarding eligibility of film and television content submitted are made by the SAFTAs Committee or its representation.
  • The SAFTAs Committee is not liable for errors in listings that are the result of incorrect information being submitted.
  • The SAFTAs Committee cannot be held responsible for film or television content being submitted to incorrect categories.
  • Categories for which 3 or fewer entries were received, shall be cancelled, meaning no SAFTAs award will be given for that category in that year. The relevant entries may be re-directed, at the judges' discretion, to the closest appropriate category. If there is no other suitable category for the entry, the entry will not be eligible for judging.

Please find below the list of awards per categories that are available to enter for the SAFTAs Golden Horn. For the entry guidelines, please visit  http://www.saftasonline.co.za/files/SAFTAS13EntryGuidelines.pdf
