In order to engage more fully within our industry sector, SACIA maintains membership in the following organisations:

The South African Screen Federation (SASFED) is the national federation of independent film, television and audiovisual content industry organisations in South Africa. Founded in 2006 in response to Government’s call for the independent production sector to speak with a united voice, SASFED represents a broad spectrum of industry players, via affiliates representing several thousand individual members and hundreds of member companies employing up to a hundred staff.


The aim of the Event Greening Forum (EGF) is to promote and embrace sustainable and ethical business practices within the events industry in South Africa, with an initial focus on meetings, incentives, conferences, exhibitions and events (hereafter called events industry). The EGF was established through the dedication and support of the industry associations who are recognised as founding members.


In the interest of transparency we’ve hosted a number of regulatory documents on this site.
