As an actor, learning is never over, and you have never arrived! There is always something more to learn and achieve. The career of an actor is a lonely and courageous journey. Opportunities to hone your craft often only occur when you are thrust on set and then the learning curve is steep. In-between these opportunities, where does one go to continue to grow and be inspired as an actor?
It was out of this need that Act Cape Town was born in 2005.
In line with our commitment to quality education for our actors, ACT made the decision to accredit the academy, and in April 2013 was granted provisional registration as a private higher education institution with the Department of Higher Education and Training.
The accreditation process inspired our team to rethink how our passion and vision would now be translated into excellent acting for film training.
The result is a shared commitment to upholding ACT as the leading acting for film academy in South Africa.
In November 2017, Act Cape Town was pronounced full registration status with the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) as a Private Higher Education Institution under the Higher Education Act, 1997.
