Filming in Mauritius – a booming industry

Mauritius is an island nation in the Indian Ocean which is about 1,000 kilometres that is 700 miles east of Madagascar. This pretty country forms part of the Mascarene Islands which are the neighbours’ islands of Reunion, Saint Brandon, and Rodrigues. Mauritius has strong cultural connections as well that goes till Europe and elsewhere. The Dutch settle on the island in 1598 until 1710, later Mauritius has become a French colony in 1715. The area spread across the shorelines is beautiful and wonderful for shooting. The modern capital city Port Louis is stunningly divine and has many natural and man-made locations for film shoots.

The cinema industry in Mauritius has been known for a major boost since the introduction of the Film Rebate Scheme (FRS) back in 2012. This has made easy for the film production companies to settle and work on good budgets. It gives the line production company the rebate of 30 to 40 per cent, which was initially just 25 per cent. This rebate was originally meant for films, but later it got extended to TV serials and commercials as well. Due to this reason, Mauritius continues to attract major international filmmakers from all around the world for the shooting of films, commercials and documentaries.
Many filmmakers say that they see a huge potential to shoot in Mauritius like Sunil Babbar – renowned filmmaker, he said I realised that this small country in the middle of the Indian Ocean has got the huge potential for cinema. Today we have many countries that want to attract film producers to their shores and they also offer exciting facilities and incentives. But when I choose among Malaysia, Thailand, Nepal and Mauritius, I get to stick with Mauritius for a number of reasons. I am completely convinced that Mauritius is the most suitable for my film projects. The country is superb and the cinema industry will thrive here.
All that we want to say is come to Mauritius and live the dream of filmmaking with the best film production and live production company in Mauritius.

So simple so clean.
