Film Cape Town portrays the city’s breathtaking locations to the world

We all know that Cape Town has got some of the world’s best film locations, and further, that filmmakers have been heading to our shores since the beginning of time. However a new image library has been integrated by filmcapetown.com to showcase the city’s amazing locations, film studios, infrastructure and diverse architecture.

According to the City of Cape Town, the new image library features over 1 300 images and videos of locations across the city, that will assist location scouts, location managers and international producers to identify potential locations for their pre-production phase.

The City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security Alderman JP Smith says the upcoming peak season for filming is just around the corner and the City, along with Film Cape Town, are working on promoting the local film industry.

” The launch of the film locations library is just one of the first steps as part of the City’s long-term strategy assisting this billion-rand industry as it works to recover after a challenging 15 months,” Smith said.

He added that the film office is currently working with the local industry representatives to develop promotional campaigns to let international clients know that the Cape Town film collective is open for business and that the technology for remote filming, are available.

“The City is also in the process of reviewing its policy on film which, together with the Film Strategy approved last year, will guide how the municipality will work with stakeholders to build a thriving, inclusive, diversified and resilient film industry,” Smith notes.

Meanwhile, independent and emerging filmmakers can mine footage when they need it for establishing shots of Cape Town in their projects or use the images in promoting the city as a competitive international film destination.
