LIGHTS, CAMERA, KNYSNA!

Welcome to Knysna – the location you've been looking for if you've been looking for forests, beaches, lakes, rivers, farmlands, mountains, villages, informal settlements, luxury homes, waterfronts... or almost any other wilderness, rural, or small town locations.

But it's more than just about locations. As one of South Africa's most attractive destinations, the Knysna area (which includes Sedgefield and a number of other, smaller villages in and around the unfenced Garden Route National Park) is an affordable, accessible, welcoming place with just the right mix of facilities, accommodation, attractions, and adventures to make filming here a pleasure.

And this site's job is to make it easy, too.

So – how can we help you make a success of your next production?

A MESSAGE FROM THE MUNICIPALITY OF KNYSNA

Often referred to as 'Hollywood’s other studio', South Africa offers world class talent and crew, and a great climate with long hours of sunlight - and many of our film studios offer very affordable production packages, too.
Some of the country's largest film studios are situated in the City of Cape Town, in the Western Cape Province – but when the film industry comes looking for new and exciting locations beyond the city, it finds them in our area (which we call the Southern Cape, or the Garden Route).
And particularly, it finds them here, in the Knysna Municipal area.
As the local authority, we recognise and appreciate the value of film to our economy - so we're deeply invested in making sure that your project succeeds. Which is why we've built this site.
We hope it'll provide you with all the information you need. But if there's anything it doesn't tell you, please contact us  - because we're here to help you.
Wishing you all the very best with your shoot in Knysna!
