Film Locations

The V&A Waterfront sets the perfect scene for any film or photographic shoot. Just bring your vision. If you’re scouting for unique, spectacular, cost effective locations, look no further. The sheer variety of opportunities at the V&A Waterfront will captivate any audience. Choose from photogenic indoor and outdoor, to daytime and night-time set prospects.


Make the most of our big skies, panoramic ocean views and majestic mountain backdrops. Discover cosmopolitan, European and African themes, and make the most of the diverse open, urban, industrial and marine spaces available. Pick from a myriad of sensory experiences – from the calm, reflective waters in the marina to the frenetic activity and buzzy atmosphere in the tourist hubs and harbour waterways.

The Waterfront has been the site of a number of international films. One of our main propositions is the uninterrupted views of Table Mountain as well as close proximity to the Cape Town Stadium. We are also an historic site, so once again people have the choice of diverse locations which are also quite timeless in look and feel. It's a site that's vibrant both day and night, so perfect for 24/7 shooting. ​

The position of the property is a huge benefit, due to its close proximity to the airport, the city of Cape Town, the winelands, West coast beaches and more. In terms of logistics support, there are a wide range of facilities available for base camps, as well as ample parking and secure storage, all at very affordable rates. ​​​​

For your cast and crew, the hospitality and entertainment at the V&A Waterfront is the perfect draw card. Choose from some great venues for launches and wrap parties, be it for small, exclusive groups, or big crowds on a budget. Opt for a restaurant, a boat cruise, or hire a special function venue at the aquarium, one of the hotels on site or at a conference centre. And book some fantastic activities, from sunset cruises, trips to Robben Island and helicopter rides, as well as visiting attractions such as Two Oceans Aquarium.

There is a host of hotel accommodation on site to choose from, with options for the luxury, high-end visitor through to mid-range, affordable lodging as well. From world-class spas to celebrated restaurants, unrivalled views and impeccable service, a stay in one of the V&A Waterfront hotels is sure to make a lasting impression on your stars.

Let this historic landmark and one of Africa’s most visited cultural destinations work its magic on you, your team and your audience.
