Film Cape Town

Welcome to Africa’s Film and Media Hub

Film Cape Town is a joint initiative between the City of Cape Town and the Cape Town film industry. It’s a focused project, designed to make the most of the city’s amazing locations, diverse talent pool and world class infrastructure to create a thriving and sustainable industry that’s the crown jewel of the continent.

What defines Cape Town as a premium film and media destination is the best “can do” attitude in the business. Beyond world-class skills and infrastructure, it’s our ability to innovate and creatively solve problems that sets the city apart.

From crimson sunrises to twilight sunsets, Cape Town is blessed with some of the best light in the world. It’s also one of the few places on the planet where you can watch the sun both rise and set over the ocean.

Cape Town’s iconic locations have featured in a number of big screen hits.
