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!

Submissions by the South African Guild of Actors to Government Notice Number R1591 dated 11 December, 2019 entitled: "Intention to Deem Persons in the Film and Television Industry as Employees for provisions of some parts of the BCEA and LRA".

The Covid-19 pandemic has brought with it the requirement for a new work protocol to mitigate the impact of the virus on the country and its people.

The attached protocol guidelines to the film and television production sector in respect of providing a safe workplace and to minimize the risk of COVID-19 while working in the screen sector. These guidelines are subject to revision and amendment from time to time.

The Theatre Benevolent Fund in association with SA Guild of Actors and the PMA has started a collection drive to supply food vouchers to artists in desperate need. The situation is already urgent, and most artists may not be able to earn an income for up to 3 months after we have defeated the virus. The TBF board feels the current situation justifies special action.

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.
