Will the SA Movie Industry ever catch up to Hollywood?

It’s no secret that in the movie industry, the standard people hold themselves to is Hollywood. Even though India’s film industry produces twice as many movies per year as Hollywood, it’s named Bollywood. Nigeria’s Nollywood is a recent addition to the “woods” and some people jokingly call the local film industry Joziwood(I hope it never catches on). It’s clear that whatever country you’re in, if you want to look at and learn from the originals of film success, Hollywood is the place to look up to.



  1. lol not until SA starts making big blockbuster movies that gross R10bn +

  2. At least you didn’t flat out say no. There’s hope for us then. :-)

  3. dig the article. just wished it was more comprehensive. my two cents is this: the south african film industry should not really concern itself wit meeeting any standards that are set by any counterpart but rather it should llok at the financing methods that weve adopted since pre94. until weve addresssed the manner in wich we finance films then stagnation will continue in the local film industry.
