A Film Commission in Greece: A brief scenario
Greece has this visual wealth of natural landscapes to offer in regions like Thrace, Macedonia, Epirus, Thessaly, the Greek mainland, the Peloponnese, Crete and of course the islands in the Aegean and the Ionian seas.
But apart from its natural beauty the country also offers a modern infrastructure for handling international film productions, production companies with a record of participations in international productions, experienced crews and service companies that can provide you with the necessary equipment.
In Greece you will not find large studios that exist in other countries. What we have here are excellent locations, unique monuments, history and myths that you will not find in other countries, all under the best light of the sun.
Hellas (Greece) is the most politically stable country of the region, an integral part of the European Union and a reliable partner in the Mediterranean Cooperation projects (Euro-Mediterranean Partnership, Mediterranean Dialogue, etc). The security of any visitor is guaranteed as demonstrated by the successful Olympic Games that Greece hosted in 2004.
Since 1974, the Greek Film Centre, which is supervised by the Hellenic Ministry of Culture, has supported the production and promotion of Greek films and has attempted to foster the participation of Greek producers in foreign productions. Since 2007, within the framework of GFC operations, the Hellenic Film Commission Office provides every possible service so that you can shoot your film in Greece.
