Film Cape Town is a joint initiative between the City of Cape Town and the Cape Town film industry. It’s a focused project, designed to make the most of the City’s amazing locations, diverse talent pool and world class infrastructure to create a thriving and sustainable industry that’s the crown jewel of the continent.

What defines Cape Town as a premium film and media destination is the best “can do” attitude in the business. Beyond world-class skills and infrastructure, it’s our ability to innovate and creatively solve problems that sets the city apart.


From crimson sunrises to twilight sunsets, Cape Town is blessed with some of the best light in the world. It’s also one of the few places on the planet where you can watch the sun both rise and set over the ocean.

Add favourable weather conditions to this for most of the year and long hours of twilight in summer and it’s easy to see why we claim having the best light in the world.

Cape Town has it all to make your visit a memorable experience

There aren't many places in the world where you can summit one of the New 7Wonders of Nature , enjoy one of the most scenic routes in the world with two oceans as your companions or visit the southernmost point of the African continent.

In Cape Town, you will find these and more diverse tourism offerings. From towering mountain ranges, pristine beaches, excellent hotels, incredible cuisine to exquisite wine farms, the Mother City has it all for visitors. It is this variety in offerings that has led the Mother City to be consistently voted as one of the world’s best tourism destinations at the World Travel Awards, by Travel + Leisure, the Telegraph and others.

Annually, Cape Town also attracts hundreds of thousands of athletes, participants, creatives and spectators to take part or enjoy the scores of events hosted throughout the year.  

The city was voted World’s Leading Festival and Event Destination 2018 and 2020 and has been voted the number one city in Africa for business tourism events.

Adding FAME Week Africa to the growing list of spectacular events on the calendar will cement Cape Town’s reputation as an events capital.

This event will provide an opportunity and a platform for local creatives and filmmakers to display their talent to the international market while also learning from industry experts.

The City of Cape Town believe these events will be among the key events to provide the lifeblood needed to revitalise not only the film and media sectors but also the tourism industry as they battle to recover from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

We hope that in between the busy schedule of the conference and other activities, you will take the opportunity to explore what our wonderful city has to offer.

Cape Town’s scenic beauty and our world-famous attractions are open for business and waiting for you.   

These offerings are available to far more travellers because of our attractive prices, meaning people get value for their money in our beautiful city.

Add our excellent integrated public transport network, getting around in Cape Town is a fluid experience - enabling easy access to big tourism attractions, popular shopping precincts and event venues.

Cape Town has it all to make your visit to its shores a memorable experience.
