OverviewThe mission of the Gauteng Film Commission (GFC) is to cultivate, facilitate and enhance an environment that allows the film and television industry to play a meaningful role in the socio-economic development of Gauteng.
The Entity's core business is to transform the Gauteng film and TV sector into a world-class industry through the following functions: increase the number of local and international film productions using GFC services, i.e. permit facilitation, location promotion and logistical support; conduct relevant research in order to become a hub of industry-related information; increase the number of jobs created in the film industry through GFC support and facilitation; increase enterprise ownership and participation by previously disadvantaged groups, i.e. black people, women and people with disabilities; contribute to an increase in and access to locally produced films through screenings, workshops, cinema exhibitions and broadcast partnerships, with the emphasis on under-resourced areas; and develop and maintain effective business processes.
The GFC also markets Gauteng, with its world-class industry infrastructure, recognised expertise and wide range of locations, as a destination of choice for filming.
