AFDA Durban (The South African School of Motion Picture Medium and Live Performance) will host Open Day on June 7.

The AFDA Durban Campus will host an Open Day on June 7 from 10h00 to 12h00 noon at the Glen Anil campus, for prospective students and their parents to obtain more information about AFDA’s Undergraduate BA degree in Motion Picture Medium or Live Performance.

This new, state of the art campus established in 2013 has seen substantial growth and upgrades to accommodate the students’ needs in the first and second year of the Undergraduate degree. The Bachelor of Arts degree is designed as a platform to nurture and develop the necessary skills to enter the industry and to create sustainable, quality and entertainment productions after they graduate. The Open Day will offer the opportunity to view selected AFDA student films, followed by a brief presentation by the Campus Dean about the Undergraduate degree. The open day will then proceed with guided tours around the campus with live demonstrations of disciplines within each of the Film, TV and Performance schools.

On Friday, June 6, the Durban campus will also host an Interview Day from 1:30pm until 5pm. Prospective students are invited to book a slot to meet with the Campus Dean, a Head of School or a lecturer from the campus within the area they may be interested in. This is an opportunity to ask any questions and seek advice on the course or a career in the Entertainment industry. There are also limited slots available for appointments on Open Day, June 7.

AFDA Durban will host the AFDA Experimental Festival in Film, Television and Performance, which will showcase student films, performances as well as a live television recording on Friday and Saturday, June 13 and 14.
