The KZNFC’s invitation for Development and Production funding proposals.

The vision of the KwaZulu-Natal Film Commission (KZNFC) is to position KwaZulu-Natal as a globally competitive, diverse and sustainable industry and choice film destination. The Film Fund is designed to stimulate the economy in the film and TV industry and supporting industries.

With the KZN industry being a distant third to Gauteng and Western Cape in terms of market size, it is important to grow the industry from within while attracting lucrative productions from outside the province. The KZNFC would therefore like to invite eligible professionals to submit proposals for Development and Production funding. Women, Youth and persons with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
