About Us


Behind the scenes Film & Entertainment Underwriters SA (Pty) Ltd is an underwriting agency, writing through Compass Insurance (a wholly-owned subsidiary of international reinsurance giant, Hannover Re) and we specialise in providing insurance cover to the film and entertainment industries.


In partnership with Lireas Holdings (also a member of the Hannover Re Group), Film & Entertainment Underwriters specialises in providing insurance cover to the film industry during the production of television and film commercials.


We believe that it is necessary for a dedicated and focused team of people to take care of the insurance needs of the film and television community, so we concentrate only on offering specialist insurance covers associated with film and television productions.


In the past, Film & Entertainment Underwriters have been privileged to be associated with the insurance programmes of international productions such as Mad Max – “Fury Road”. “The Giver”, “Blended”, “Homeland”, “Tremors 5” and local productions such as “The Endless River”, “Noem my Skollie”, “Hollywood in my Huis”, “Semi-Soet” along with TV Productions such as “Saints and Sinners”, “Traffic”, “Rhythm City” to name a few.


We write our business through an equally dedicated group of brokers and would be only too happy to put you in touch with any one of them should you have the need for our services.


So... get some popcorn, take a seat, make sure your cellphone is on, and give us a call!

lights, camera, action!
