About the SAFTAs (The South African Film and Television Awards)


In 2005 representatives of the South African Film and Television industry resolved to come together with guidance from the National Film and Video Foundation of South Africa (NFVF) to establish the annual South African Film and Television Awards, the SAFTAs. The Awards honour, celebrate and promote the creativity, quality and excellence of South African Film and Television talent and productions, and serve to encourage entrepreneurship and the development of new talent within the industry.

Each award recipient is presented with a trophy, the 'Golden Horn', which has three heads symbolising collective effort, community, and the recognition of the individual as part of a team - an experience inherent to the film and television industry where collaboration is the cornerstone of successful productions. There have been eight sessions of the awards to date with each giving over 70 awards. Read more about the 2015 SAFTAS here
