Now in its 10th year, the South African Guild of Actors (SAGA) is a powerful, unified voice for actors in the film, television, stage, commercial and corporate sectors in South Africa.

The entertainment industry is a tough gig. As actors, we all have our stories of injustice, dishonesty, discrimination and unreasonable working conditions. The only way to create a fair working environment in our industry is to stand together and act with a common purpose. By joining SAGA, you become part of a powerful, unified voice that aims to right current wrongs and influence future legislation to create fair and equitable working conditions. We are apolitical, non-racial and democratic and represents your interests. SAGA gives you a legal voice – join and use your voice!

Never miss a production, cast or crew update with IMDBPro Track! This platform is an indispensable tool for film professionals worldwide  - your online ‘resume’ featuring your headshots and hosting your show reels.

For the first time in South Africa, there is the possibility of a statutory mechanism that secures the economic content of the rights that performers are routinely required to transfer to the producer. Through the Copyright Amendment Bill we have a realistic hope of negotiating equitable contracts.

SAGA is drawing attention to an industry in crisis, with 78% of women working in film and TV saying they are discriminated against because of their gender. It's video series pull back the veil of magic around the world of cinema to reveal that women both on camera and behind the camera face often insurmountable obstacles to succeeding.
