South Australian Film Corporation

The South Australian Film Corporation (SAFC) is South Australia’s leading screen authority and investment body.

The SAFC was established in 1972 as the first screen agency in Australia and supports the growth, development and promotion of all components of the state’s screen industry.

Over its half-century of operation the SAFC has transformed from its original role as the production company behind iconic Australian films such as Sunday Too Far Away, Breaker Morant, Picnic at Hanging Rock and Storm Boy, into South Australia’s “all screen” agency, supporting all parts of the sector from the production of feature films, TV series, documentaries, short films and web series to post-production, digital and visual effects (PDV), video games, virtual reality (VR) and more.

The SAFC also administers a range of Production and Development funding for screen productions of all types, and manages exciting screen employment and training initiatives and skilling opportunities.

As the most experienced screen agency in Australia, the SAFC’s focus is on supporting and championing South Australian screen businesses to achieve creative excellence and prosperity, contributing to a robust South Australian economy and creative vibrancy.
