Cape Town residents urged to comment on the Draft Filming By-law

 The City of Cape Town’s Events and Film Department has urged all residents to comment on the Draft Filming By-law.

This comes after the By-law seeks to replace the City’s Filming By-law of 2005.

The By-law aims to empower the City’s Film Permit Office to better manage and regulate filming activities within the Mother City.

Cape Town continues to be a desired setting for movies, and the city makes an effort to be a film-friendly location. However, the City must strike a balance between the demands of locals who use public places and economic operations like filmmaking. Therefore, the goal is to control transient public nuisances caused by filming.

The department has drafted a document to ensure that the Mother City’s management and regulation of filming are in line with international standards.

“All comments and suggestions received will be considered for inclusion” said The city’s JP Smith
