Feature Video

The Community Video Education Trust (CVET) is community based and community development orientated. It is located in Cape Town and exists to serve the previously disadvantaged communities of the greater Cape Town area. CVET has more than twenty years history of involvement in programs to bring about transition towards the democratization of media access and use, and utilization of video technology as a catalyst in social development. It was formed in 1976 as an Association of NGOs and individuals with particular interest in media development.

The core business of the CVET is to train community members in video production as well as producing commercial productions. CVET has over the years acquired its own equipment. The production output on an average per year is about 20 productions, and they have produced for the SABC, eTV and other companies.
