The Garden Route Film Office is embarking on a Free Membership drive.  Registration is simple – just click on this link and enter your details:

WHY REGISTER: Did you know that over the past 6 years based on the activity of just ONE production company, 18 Million rand has been injected into the local economy through payment of suppliers, cast, crew and other sundries. (There are a number of productions in the area annually) The misconception is that only Accommodation establishments benefit from film and some catering. 

Here is an example of industries and resources that this production company has used in the Garden Route District: Florists, Doctors, Dentists, Water Suppliers, Generator Hire, Accommodation, Restaurants, Hair Dressers, Spa’s, Beauty Salons, Mechanics, Catering, Event Equipment Hire, Car Hire, Game Reserves, B&B’s, Conference Venues, Motorbike Hire, Cleaners, Valets, Ironing Services, Laundry, Post and Couriers, Legal, Medical, Boat Hire, Bowsers, Bicycles, Adventure Companies, Extreme Activities, Boating Excursions, Extras , Characters and Actors local, Junior PA’s, Set Runners, Department Assistance, Chaperones (Drivers), Chefs, Wardrobe and Makeup Artistes, Accounting, Wine Farms. Photographic Equipment, Trailer Hire – DEPENDING on the type of production, the list of services required increases. 

  • Producers around the world look to a central point of access to information due to the fast nature in which quotations are done and speed at which they have to put logistics of a show together.
  • The database we are building is searchable for this very reason.
  • Information on productions bound for the Garden Route is distributed to members and also information on other industry related events, training and opportunities.

Whilst we appreciate the current situation in South Africa and around the globe, we aim to remain pro-active so that we are ready for the turnaround of events and an influx of productions that have been for now postponed.
