Panel urges new film foundation

An Arts and Culture Task Group appointed by the South African government has recommended the establishment of a national film foundation to promote local productions.

Comprising 23 experts in the field of arts and culture, the task group also proposed the establishment of a national film bank to provide low-interest loans to local producers.

The task group said functions of the film foundation would include liaison with local and foreign film and TV industries and pitching the production and distribution of local films.

It also recommended the establishment of a national state-funded film trust to finance entry-level producers and directors, scriptwriters and video producers.

Arts and Culture minister Ben Ngubane said the task group’s report, the result of a six-month inquiry, will now be put to public debate.
