Cambodia has changed a lot in the last ten years and the cambodian authorities have put a lot of effort into creating one of the most "film friendly" country in Asia. It's time to forget all you've been told about the Kingdom of Cambodia and to come and see by yourself.

The Cambodia Film Commission is your gateway to prepare your next shooting. A professionnal team, well aware of production matters is here to assist you at every stage of production with a direct link to the ministry of Culture which issues shooting permits. The CFC is here to help you step by step to make your next dream film become real.
