Wesgro Film and Media

The Western Cape is a sought-after film destination. Major international and local productions are drawn by the wide range of locations, exemplary services and studios. Wesgro Film and Media assist with production in the province, including regulation guidance and finding co-production parties. There are many reasons why the Western Cape is a preferred destination for local and international production teams. Local and foreign filmmakers are taking advantage of the country’s diverse and unique locations – as well as its low production costs. Among other attractive benefits, low production costs and favourable exchange rates present considerable savings for film-makers: it is up to 40% cheaper to make films here than it is in Europe and the USA, and up to 20% cheaper than in Australia. Visit website »
