Gauteng Film Commission promotes 2010 catalogue celebrating FIFA World Cup South Africa


In June 2010, South Africa (SA) will host the FIFA World Cup – a mega sporting event that is comparable only to the Olympic Games. In preparation for this global spectacular, the Gauteng Film Commission (GFC) has compiled a catalogue of 2010 and soccer-themed titles, recently completed or currently in production. The catalogue was launched to international buyers attending MIPCOM 2009 – the leading content market held in Cannes, France each year.

“There has been a dearth of 2010-themed content and international buyers have been clamouring for programmes that not only cover the World Cup but South Africa and Africa in general. The launch of the GFC’s catalogue has therefore been greeted with keen interest,” says Jacques Stoltz, GFC Senior Marketing Manager.

Dan Jawitz from Fireworx Marketing & Distribution representing a number of the titles included in the catalogue says that he has seen keen interest from buyers from Brazil, Argentina and Malaysia attending MIPCOM this year.
