AFDA enjoys a rich entrepreneurial history, formalized strategic relationships with the industry and the ability to train talent to a high level of aesthetic, attitudinal, craft, technical and intellectual ability. This is coupled with a prolific output and creation of quality entertainment products.
Over the last 10 years AFDA has become a South African institution of international reputation and excellence. AFDA graduates are trained to be part of and contribute to one of the largest growth industries in the world today: entertainment. AFDA graduates are also educated to a level that facilitates a profitable and sustainable career in the entertainment industry.
In a fast-expanding global world, cultural exchange is a priority and AFDA graduates are taught to conceptualize, grow and create indigenous cultural products and commodities for the local and international market. Students are encouraged to originate intellectual property in the industry and to develop themselves as employment providers to become the entertainment and cultural entrepreneurs of the future. To this end AFDA has developed a culture of champions and our alumni have infiltrated and re-invigorated their industries with a high level of skill and talent. Almost all our current alumni are working and employed in their chosen field of specialization. This serves our vision of growing the entertainment industry.
