Hollywood Comes to Cape Town

February 24, 2014 By:

Hollywood is coming to South Africa this week on a tour that could set Cape Town up as one of the most filmed cities and locations.

It could also turn it into one of the premier movie-making destinations on the planet.


Top executives from major film studios Warner Brothers, Paramount, Disney and the Producers Guild of America (PGA) landed on Saturday for a 10-day tour of the country. They will visit key tourist destinations, scout potential filming locations, meet local production companies, and tour post-production facilities and studios.

And the red carpet will be rolled out for the studio execs, who include Sara Spring, senior vice-president for feature production management at Paramount; Kate Beyda, senior vice-president for physical productions at New Line/Warner; Mary Anne Hughes, vice-president for film and television production planning for The Walt Disney Company (which includes Miramax and ABC); and Vance van Petten, chairman of the PGA, which has 6 000 members.

The group arrived in Johannesburg on Saturday and are due to go on a safari, as well as tours of The Cradle of Humankind, the Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg, the Cape Winelands and Robben Island.

LandnSand Rover

LandnSand Rover was a Stellenbosch street cat, before he joined the team as an intern roving reporter. Some say that he can be seen late at night, prowling along Dorp Street to the town centre, in search of hot leads (or a bar that won't inspect his ID card too closely). His interests include fishing, wine and mice and his main ambition is to grow old enough to attend wine tastings. He answers all his own fan mail.
