DEVELOPMENT • PRODUCTION • FINANCE • DISTRIBUTION
Forefront Media Group is a film and television development, production, finance, and distribution entity headquartered in Johannesburg, South Africa. Its principals are Eddie Mbalo and Ryan Haidarian formerly of the National Film and Video Foundation of South Africa.
Forefront Media Group is uniquely positioned to combine solid expertise and well-grounded networks in the content space from both the South African and international media landscapes – specifically the US and Europe.
Having been intricately involved in the creation of the different investment vehicles and incentives in South Africa, the team behind Forefront Media Group has been able to tap into those financing networks as well as international sales contacts to create a commercially viable company that services the entire value chain of content, from development through to distribution and exhibition.
