Now in its 10th year, the South African Guild of Actors (SAGA) is a powerful, unified voice for actors in the film, television, stage, commercial and corporate sectors in South Africa.

The entertainment industry is a tough gig. As actors, we all have our stories of injustice, dishonesty, discrimination and unreasonable working conditions. The only way to create a fair working environment in our industry is to stand together and act with a common purpose. By joining SAGA, you become part of a powerful, unified voice that aims to right current wrongs and influence future legislation to create fair and equitable working conditions. We are apolitical, non-racial and democratic and represents your interests. SAGA gives you a legal voice – join and use your voice!

SAGA is presenting a case to government, aimed at securing financial relief for freelance actors who have been negatively affected by the Covid-19 National Disaster.

Actors, please fill in the linked form to help us in compiling data for presentation.

The measures proposed in the minister’s statement are based on the announcement by the president on 15 March 2020 which declared a National State of Disaster. The announcement of 15 March restricted public and private gatherings to less than 100 people and Min. Mthethwa describes this necessary measure as being a ‘fatal blow’ to the sector.

Clean your hands and all surfaces before and after you touch anything that enters your home from outside.
