An incomparable range of locations and atmospheres

India offers film professionals an incomparable range of locations and atmospheres, from the snowy peaks of the Himalayas to the sweltering mangroves of Gujarat, from the splendor of Jaipur palaces to the beggar-filled streets of Kolkata (Calcutta). This diversity is also reflected in the land’s pluralistic, multilingual and multi-ethnic society.

The world’s largest producer of films

India is also the world’s largest producer of films, in 2009 alone releasing close to 1300 features. The industry covers 24 languages with various regional film hubs.

Its variety of sites and vast tradition of film production make India an exceptionally attractive destination for any type of production. Yet honing in on the right locations and communicating the specific demands of a western production to a staggering diversity of local partners can quickly turn a dream shoot into a nightmare.
