SAGA is a full member of the International Federation of Actors who, for the third year running, is sponsoring this event aimed at capacity building and knowledge-sharing. In the past we’ve covered topics ranging from international co-productions to copyright, residuals and royalties. FIA’s support has been vital in getting the Performers Protection Act and Copyright Act accepted into parliament for review!

Reserve your place now, and get in touch with what’s happening in your industry and gain insight into the global landscape. 

This year’s FIA conference includes special sessions with actors’ agents in both Johannesburg and Cape Town, providing an opportunity for open discussion around the standard practice of agents internationally.  

Contractual matters and concerns around outbound international touring theatre productions as well as inbound film projects will be discussed, as will the bread-and-butter business of television commercials and language dubbing. Other items on the agenda include a look at “Disability in the Entertainment Industry”; an examination of “Discrimination Policy and Practice”, including LGBT issues and questions of sexual harassment.

The conference sessions are:

  • In Cape Town on Monday the 24th and Tuesday 25th October, at the Pepper Club on the corner of Loop and Pepper streets.
  • In Johannesburg on Thursday the 27th and Friday 28th October, at the Little Tuscany Boutique Hotel in Queens Road, Bryanston.

Entrance, including refreshments, is limited and is absolutely FREE
