The New AFDA Durban campus which will take students in 2013 is under construction in Glen Anil

Very simple design, but like the bold branding on the side

Afda to get new campus
13 Aug 2012


AFDA, the South African School of Motion Picture Medium and Live Performance, will be opening a brand-new campus in Durban in 2013. The launch was celebrated at the 33rd Durban International Film Festival, during which Afda students showcased nine short films.

Afda started in 1994 in Johannesburg with a rented television, a broken VCR machine and six students. It has expanded to encourage and inspire a number of young talents to create relevant and engaging film and media content to contribute to the growth of the South African industry over the past 18 years.

The chairperson and co-founder of Afda, Garth Holmes, said: “The Durban KZN axis is critical for providing the region with an international standard of learning that is capable of producing the intellectual, aesthetic, conceptual, attitudinal and technical skills required to create the necessary commercial platforms to evoke Durban’s unique cultural voice.”

The campus will be in Glen Anil at 2a Highdale Road. Open days will be held on August 18 and October 6. Inquiries: [email protected] or phone 079 833 1682. — Arts Editor.

totally depends what it is made of. if a fibreglass or plastic form then a hosepipe will do the trick.

Nice design. I wish it was in Glenwood, though, near the KZNSA Gallery and other arty initiatives in that area. Would really cement Glenwood as Durban's arts and creativity district.

agree. I think the location is rather weird too, next to residential and light industry... But it's probably close to where it sees its source market. Glenwood or Morningside would have been a good fit
