Garth Holmes, co-founder of AFDA, talks about where he sees the South African film industry in 10 years as he thinks it will grow.

Not only will the industry grow, but he says film schools and the amount of content that South African filmmakers are putting out is on the rise as well.

"The capacity that we have to distribute content globally without any middle man is certainly going to create a massive accessive market for content to be created and delivered to Africa," said Holmes.

He also sees a big market for local television and series coming out of South Africa. Social media is another aspect to be mindful of as it births "mavericks and stars", as Holmes puts it.

These people have the potential to be marketed all over the world and South Africa's film industry will then join the global filmmaking market, where Holmes says, hollywood does not dominate like it currently does.

If you're wanting to build a career within the film industry, AFDA could be a very good place for you to start at. AFDA is a school that offers courses in film, television, performance, business innovation and technology, radio and podcasting.
