Welcome to Locations Africa

Locations Africa was created to help unlock Africa’s vast, diverse locations and services for the international film industry. It’s understood that every international film, tv or commercial production that can be persuaded to shoot on location in Africa means a high-profile, low-impact injection of foreign currency that can create brand and positive images to a wider market.

Locations Africa understands that in many African countries and regions, the ability to attract production-on-location is constrained. In particular, information about the African film industry, its locations and its service offerings is difficult to find, and International producers have no easy way to connect with the locations, services, skills and equipment available to them on the continent.

Locations Africa aims to support relevant change – principally by creating this portal to the film contacts within government around the continent. The organization also facilitates the African Film Commissions Network, and provides training for African film commission personnel.
