Film permits in Morocco
Standing by its reputation as one of the most film friendly location in the world, Morocco offers a very easy film permit system. Movie producers are welcomed by the Moroccan government and have to go through simplified permit procedures and flexible regulations.
For any film to be shot in Morocco, an official permit from the Moroccan Cinematographic Center, the film production and government authorization agency in Morocco, is a must. This agency governs all film production in Morocco.
Set up in 1944 and recognized in 1977, CCM works in the area of organizing the Moroccan film industry and promoting Moroccan cinema. It also works in promoting Morocco as a top film shooting location in the world. Lately, it has also acquired a host of facilities to perform a number of movie-production activities; the activities include avid editing, sound editing, 35 mm positive editing, and even producing TV films. CCM also maintains a film archive of national and international films.
