The South Australian Film Corporation (SAFC) is a statutory body established under the 1972 South Australian Film Corporation Act. The SAFC has a Board of Directors, which is appointed by the State government and reports to the Minister for the Arts.
Our vision is to be recognised globally as the most dynamic screen agency in Australia.
We aim to empower the South Australian production industry to achieve success. We have made a commitment to engage directly with the local industry and to create an environment that encourages creativity and is open to doing things differently.
Since our inception in 1972, the SAFC has formed a vital part of South Australia’s cultural and economic life. Our role changed substantially in 1994 when the SAFC ceased production to become a film support body and lead agency in South Australia for the promotion, stimulation and development of the film industry.
As the home of independent filmmaking in Australia we are focused on ensuring we maintain this hard won reputation for the benefit of our local filmmakers, our world class production and post-production companies, the SA tourism market and our state's screen culture.
The core activities of the SAFC are to foster the creation and delivery of critically acclaimed and commercially successful ideas, moving images and sound for any viewing medium; to support the SA screen industry in a dynamic and responsive manner and to optimise opportunities for production and post-production in this state.
The SAFC's core activities include:
Screen practitioner development and support.
Script and project development.
Production investment funding, cash flow loans and incentives.
Operation of production and post-production facilities.
Marketing South Australia's unique locations, professional crew and state of the art facilities to both domestic and international markets, including a confidential locations and production liaison service for projects looking to shoot in SA.
Strategic Plan 2012
The SAFC's Strategic Plan 2012 was developed over a number of years in close consultation with the SAFC Board, senior management and representatives of the South Australian film industry.
