Film Critics Association of South Africa

The Film Critics Association of South Africa was founded in 2009.

The association was established as a result of a growing number of recognised film critics in South Africa, an influx of feature film productions in the local film-making industry and a greater prominence on the international circuit with films like Gavin Hood's Oscar-winning Tsotsi, Oliver Hermanus's Moffie, Jahmil X.T. Quebeka's Knuckle City and Neill Blomkamp's District 9, which received critical acclaim worldwide. 

The country has become a valuable film-making destination for its beautiful landscapes, prime film locations, economic benefits, first-class crew, diverse casting and wealth of historical significance.

Here are our current members and their associated publications. You're welcome to contact us for advice on who's best suited to cover your film, festival or movie event.
