Tunisia is a country of contrasts.
In the north are classic Italian style rolling hills and wheat fields. The west is mountainous and covered in dense forest.
Tourists from all over the globe come to enjoy the golden beaches and luxurious hotels right on the Med.
Only five hours south of the capital Tunis, you reach the pristine Sahara desert. Its massive dunes and rocky landscapes provide the perfect backdrop for film crews from all over.
Proximity to Europe
Tunisia is accessible from all over the world: Tunis-Rome is just over an hours flying time away and Tunis-London is under three hours.
It is not a large country; from Bizerte in the north to Tataouine in the south is @ 600km. This is about the length of the coast of California. There is a small population of 10 million people and a high literacy rate.
Rich historical and cultural heritage
For thousands of years Tunisia has served as a crossroads for ancient civilisations: Roman, Byzantine, Punic, Carthaginian, Turkish, Andalucian, Arab and finally France. This rich heritage has produced an unrivalled variety of buildings, monuments and archeological sites.
It is now the only democracy in the region.
Since the 60s Tunisia has been welcoming film productions from all over the world. Examples include: Star Wars 1, 2 and 4 by George Lucas and The English Patient by Anthony Minguella to cite just two.
As a result, Tunisian crews and actors are used to working to international standards and are multilingual.
