AFDA was founded in 1994 by Garth Holmes, Bata Passchier and Deon Opperman. From its early beginnings of 6 students, a rented VCR and broken TV it has become one of the leading institutions of its kind in the world today. AFDA has over 1200 students, over 100 full-time staff and fully equipped campus and facilities. It has produced some of the top film-makers and actors in South Africa today and has made a significant contribution to developing a sustainable local entertainment industry. The overall goal of AFDA is to develop an institution that meaningfully contributes to South African nation building and rewards all stakeholders by providing a stimulating and globally integrated tertiary learning experience, that empowers graduates with recognised professional skills levels, creating a pool of highly talented alumni that will contribute to growing an economically viable South African entertainment industry.
