Film Finance

What is Film Finance?

Film Production Finance is a tailored funding solution designed exclusively for the film industry, catering to the production of series for renowned platforms like Netflix, Viacom, Amazon Prime, DSTV, MNET, SABC, and more.

Film and movie production companies often grapple with diverse financing needs, from project mobilization, paying actors and consultants, to acquiring specialized equipment and ensuring robust working capital support. Recognizing these unique requirements, we offer a comprehensive Film Investment strategy that encompasses Bridging Finance, Working Capital Finance, and Specialised Asset Finance. Our Film Production Loans and Funding Facilities are typically structured as Revolving Finance Facilities, ensuring continuous support for film and series production.

The intricacies of film and series production bring forth challenges that can strain cash flow. These might include insufficient working capital to initiate a project, pay actors and consultants, capital expenditure for specialized equipment, or payment delays after signing distribution agreements.

Understanding that every film or series venture is distinct, we delve deep into the entrepreneur’s vision. Our Film Funding decisions are rooted in the specific business context and the project’s nature. Usually, the funding from family & friends or the grants/incentives from the National Film and Video Foundation (NFVF film funding) or the DTI Film Incentive are insufficient. That is why we are committed to bolstering South African based film production businesses, ensuring they have the necessary Movie Financing and Film Venture Capital to bring their visions to life.
