Partners and key role players have been identified to assist in taking this vision forward in a self-sustainable way, and eight specific strategic interventions had been identified to guide the GR&KK Film Office as a one-stop service entry point for the local and international industry members.
The GR&KK film industry can grow by leveraging its unique and diverse combination of locations, ease of access and “Film Friendly” attitude. The challenge for the industry is how to effectively address the constraints it faces, so it can unlock the region’s growth potential. As the Western Cape’s next key economic hub, the region has a fast growing population, ready for both local and international productions. The region is becoming a popular filming destination and embraced the opportunity to become more pro-active and focussed on the industry needs.
