About the SA Guild of Actors

The South African Guild of Actors (SAGA) is a powerful, unified voice for actors in the film, television, stage, commercial and corporate sectors in South Africa. The Guild exists to promote professionalism in the performance industry, and to protect and enhance actors' working conditions, compensation and benefits.

SAGA is a member of the International Actors Federation (FIA), alongside Actors' Guilds and Unions from 68 countries.

  • SAGA upholds the excellence and harnesses the passion of the performance industry. We offer the opportunity to take part in online professional acting workshops throughout the year.
  • Parliamentary lobbying and global support when it comes to protecting your legislated rights (through SAGA's membership of FIA, the International Federation of Actors)
  • Representation/assistance with contractual disputes; if formally employed, assistance in grievance, disciplinary, CCMA and Labour Court cases and retrenchment consultations.
