SOUTH AFRICAN INDEPENDENT PRODUCERS ORGANISATION
The Independent Producers Organisation is a representative, national organization of independent South African film, television, and digital producers, that was formed in 1996, constituted to represent, protect and promote the interests and needs of producers.
Since its inception, Stage Five Films has been a part of the IPO. Stage Five Films’ Producer and Partner, Dylan Voogt comments on the impact the organization has had on the local industry:
“Producers of entertainment content and services in South Africa are vital as they create employment opportunities, allowing for increased economic activity and investment. They also serve in some part to reflect and preserve the local culture. In that, the IPO has contributed in a very positive way.
