Cinemuse wishes to provide exposure to all South Africans, being financially affluent, or poor. As we endeavour to enrich ourselves in the knowledge of the language of filmmaking, we will strive to share this knowledge with those less priveleged, and ensure that the knowledge gap does not continue to increase. Only together, our voices will create a unique South African cultural heritage.
