Its ancient history, cultural diversity, geographic location and its varied terrains distinguish the Kingdom of Saudi, Arabia as it is surrounded by the Red Sea, Gulf of Aqaba and the Arabian Gulf. It also contains various deserts, mountains and valleys, which can be a gateway and an inspiring opportunity to tell many a story.
As part of SFC’s mandate to support and facilitate growth of the film industry, a Locations Library has been developed. It is a digital library that features images and relevant information on the vast range of filming locations in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The library will be continuously updated and will serve as an important resource to select inspiring settings for productions.
