Film Cities of India

By Pickle  July 29, 2019

With India emerging one-stop destination for media and entertainment services, film cities in India are contributing to the sector by attracting filmmakers from across the world

Mumbai Film City

The Film City’s greatest advantage is its location and the vast area of more than 520 acres it covers in the suburbs of Mumbai. With over 40 picturesque locales, some of the facilities here include 44 enchanting outdoor locations, 16 cosy air-conditioned studios with over 100,000 sq. ft. of space and 85 air-conditioned makeup rooms attached to locations. Permanent locations include a helipad, an artificial lake, a temple and a court.

Maharashtra Film, Stage and Cultural Development Corporation (MFSCDC) envisions to transform the current facility into an international standard integrated film-making destination
