AFDA was established in Johannesburg in 1994 and is currently situated on a 10 000 square metre campus within a stone's throw of the national TV broadcaster, the SABC.
Also known as Egoli ('place of gold') or Jozi, it is South Africa's go-to-go TV production kitchen, and enjoys sunny weather all year round.
Fondly known as Jo'burgers, the six million strong population of this vibrant melting pot includes all major Southern African ethnicities, plus thousands of Western, Eastern and Central Africans and EU residents.
