Why Film in South Africa?

It would be hard to find a better filming location than South Africa anywhere else in the world.

Anyone who has visited our country will be familiar with its spectacular natural beauty, but this is not the only factor in its favour. We have a filming infrastructure which competes with the best in the world.

Low Cost

The SA Rand has fallen in value by 50% in the past five years, making South Africa an ever more attractive location to spend your film budget.


Talented Cast

We have a diverse range of people living in South Africa and can fulfil the majority of casting requirements from extras, to characters, to actors and both local and international models.

The wide variety of ‘looks’ is matched by the availability of many international and accents, offering a flexibility few if any other international venues can match.
