National Film And Video Foundation (NFVF) Bursary 2024



NFVF Bursaries

The National Film and Video Foundation (NFVF) is a non-profit organization that promotes the South African film industry. It is a Department of Arts and Culture agency that provides funding for film development and distribution, as well as training for aspiring filmmakers.

South Africa’s film industry is expanding, offering a diverse range of productions as the country shares its stories with audiences both locally and internationally. However, there is a need to ensure that the industry grows and transforms in an equitable manner.

The NFVF is a Department of Arts and Culture agency tasked with ensuring the equitable and sustainable growth of the country’s film industry. Its goal is to stimulate the South African film industry and empower previously disadvantaged individuals interested in pursuing a career in filmmaking. There are significant training needs because the industry is experiencing some skill shortages, which the NFVF intends to address. The foundation provides bursaries for local and international film industry studies.

However, the bursaries available do not cover acting and performance arts courses. Qualified students who lack the financial means to pursue their dreams can apply for one of two types of bursaries:

National Bursary

The bursary is available for undergraduate and postgraduate diploma or degree studies in film or television-related fields (excluding any courses involving performance arts or acting).

The University of South Africa (Unisa) recently announced the extension for 2024 admission applications has been extended to 17 November 2023.

Who Must Apply?

Unisa emphasises that all individuals embarking on a new qualification must complete an admission application. This requirement extends to first-time applicants and existing students seeking a change in their qualifications or area of specialisation. 

Individuals who previously applied for admission but were not offered placement or opted not to register after receiving a placement offer must also reapply for admission.

New applicants are permitted to apply for a maximum of two qualifications. Upon a successful application, candidates have the choice to accept or decline Unisa’s offer, with the condition of accepting only one offer.

Students completing a higher certificate or any other programmes and aiming to pursue further undergraduate studies must also apply during this application period.
