									INVITATION TO PARTICIPATE IN A RESEARCH PROGRAMME ON:

FILM, TELEVISION AND VIDEO EDUCATION & TRAINING IN THE
WESTERN CAPE


1.     BACKGROUND

The Cape Film Commission (CFC) would like to invite you to participate in a Research
Project to determine Film, Television and Video Education and Training activities in the
Western Cape.

The Film Industry has been identified by both city and provincial governments as one of
the five key industries that have the potential to unlock economic growth. And with a
growth rate of 18% last year, the industry is generally estimated to generate R2 billion of
economic activity a year.

However, this has not translated into additional opportunities for historically
disadvantaged filmmakers. We believe that the Film Industry is a key driver for future
economic growth. However, in order to position the Western Cape as a domestically and
internationally respected hub of filmmaking, we must ensure that opportunities are
generated for aspirant filmmakers from historically disadvantaged communities.

Efforts to provide concerted, co-ordinated training are now a priority.
The CFC is mandated to facilitate transformation through training and development
within the Film Industry, and ensuring that significant numbers of young people – black
and white – continue to enter and progress through this sector of our economy. However,
the CFC requires input into the formal AND informal education and training
opportunities currently available.


2.     GOALS OF THE RESEARCH PROJECT

The CFC seeks to establish through this research:

          Clarity on what training courses are currently provided by Formal Film
           Schools, including prospectuses and course outlines where possible.
          Clarity on other Formal training courses at Universities and Technical
           colleges that have direct impact on film industry activities, including
           prospectuses and course outlines where possible.
          Clarity on what informal training is taking place on film sets and on the
           premises of service / equipment providers, including course outlines where
           possible
          Clarity on career paths available in the industry
          Clarity on NQF standards available in the industry


                                                                                           1
            Clarity on current gaps in knowledge & skills in the industry
            Clarity on priorities for NQF standards drafting to promote training
            Information on the companies, organizations, government departments etc.
             providing funding for training, including application forms.
            Development of specific Careers Guidance packs for students ie:
                 Camera Department
                 Lighting Department
                 Sound Department
                 Hair, Make up and Wardrobe
                 Art Department and Set Building
                 Directors Department
            Development of budget for Career Icons promotional materials based on
             abovelisted Careers Packs
            Understanding of the barriers to access to education for hdis.
            Acknowledgement of five significant educational activities conducted in the
             Western Cape film industry that have had a trackable impact on industry
             access.
            Identification of training, education and development initiatives embarked on
             by other industries that could be successfully applied to the Western Cape


This research will provide important inputs for the CFCs vision and strategy on B.E.E.
It will also provide direction for the B.E.E. summit scheduled for later in 2004.

It is also valuable information to ensure that the CFC and its constituency are “working
from the same page” when it comes to the role of training & education in meeting
transformation objectives / requirements.

This research must be seen in the light of the CFC’s ongoing consultative processes with
all its stakeholders and members
