Cape Town Film Production
South Africa’s beautiful Mother City, Cape Town has become increasingly popular as a film location in recent years. The unmistakable Cape scenery can be seen as backdrops for advertisements, movies and television programs the world over.
It is becoming quite usual for local Capetonians to spot Hollywood stars out and about at the Cape’s luxury hotels, funky cocktail bars and cafes and even relaxing on the exquisite white beaches of the uber-trendy Atlantic Seaboard. Many feature films have been shot in Cape Town over the past years – most notably Lord of War (starring Nicolas Cage) which was released in late 2005.
On any given day, especially in the summer season (November to February) one can spot numerous sign boards for a range of production companies on location on the roads of the Cape.
