Welcome to SAGE

The South African Guild of Editors is a voluntary, non-profit organisation which represents film and video picture editors, assistant editors and sound editors. Since its inception in the early 90s, SAGE has become a recognised player in the film and television industry.

With more than 100 active members, the guild represents most of the best talent in the feature film, TV drama, documentary, insert, on-line and sound editing in South Africa today. Read more about SAGE.

What does SAGE do?

SAGE aims to promote the art of editing. We represent post-production workers' interests at industry and government levels. We facilitate masterclasses, workshops, internships — and we host screenings and social events. We also offer a standard rate card, a pre-employment checklist and a job offer reporter. Find out more at news and events.

For producers looking to hire, we provide a verified list of members and their post-production skills. We also send out job opportunities to our membership mailing list.

We welcome membership applications year round. The SAGE accreditation team carefully approves all applications, and requires a current CV plus three references. Read more about joining SAGE.
