Filming in Morocco

For almost 115 years, Morocco has been one of the top destinations for film producers and directors.

The trend of shooting movies in Morocco has seen a dramatic surge in recent years – some of the most famous directors return time and again, including Ridley Scott, Stephen Sommers, Paul Greengrass, and Martin Scorsese.

Blockbusters and popular movies shot in Morocco include Gladiator, The Mummy, The Mummy Returns, Alexander, The Bourne Ultimatum, Body of Lies, Sex and the City 2, Inception and more ...

 

Film Locations

What persuades all these well-known film makers to come and shoot their movies in Morocco?


They simply know that, whether their movies are talking about events happening today or deep in a distant past, be they set in cities, mountains or the desert, Morocco film locations will fit wonderfully, as if tailored just for their stories.

They also know that, by filming all or part of their projects in Morocco, they will surround their characters with a certain exoticism they wouldn’t find anywhere else.

 

Why Morocco

One of the major benefits is the proximity of Morocco to Europe and to the USA.

In addition, Morocco has the most developed cinema infrastructure in the region, with experienced film companies providing production services, location scouts, hiring of crews, shooting permits, equipment rental in Morocco or abroad, transport, catering, accommodation and more.

Location fees are arguably the lowest in Africa and annual sunshine levels are more than 8 hours a day at the most wanted filming locations, such as Marrakech, Ouarzazate, Ait Ben Haddou, Erfoud, Essaouira and Agadir.
