We are part of a family-owned group of companies that includes at least 6 of the top South African insurance companies, two food franchises in 30 countries, a wine estate, hotel and conference centre and luxury lodges throughout Africa and India.

We create and support films which have both critical and commercial success and often work with highly respected international producers in both a servicing and co-production capacity while remaining dedicated to fostering South African talent. Meet the team…
