The Cape Town film industry saw a 40% downturn over the 2017 season, ending in June this year.
This has driven the City of Cape Town and the film and media industry to work towards a “tactical intervention”.

The City recently launched, as a joint initiative with the Cape Town film and media industry, a new online platform to promote Cape Town as a destination for shoots.

The Film Cape Town website ( is aimed at promoting the city as “the premier film and media destination while also providing prospective clients with tools to make their production in Cape Town a success”, the City says in a statement.

The website is an online platform designed to showcase the city’s locations, diverse talent pool and world-class infrastructure that contributes to a thriving and sustainable industry.
