When Filming in Algeria


Algeria is the largest country in Africa and is best known for its desert location, cities that are steeped in history, Mediterranean beaches and The Sahara Desert.

Other film locations of note are the great mosques, catholic basilicas, French colonial buildings, roman ruins and the fort at Santa Cruz in Oran.

Beautiful arid mountains and unforgettable dessert cities. Oasis towns with beautiful national parks. An 11th century fortress situated in the Saharan region.

Agriculture locations include olive groves, vineyards, wheat and barley fields and energy locations gas fired power plants and hydroelectric power plants.

The desert town of Tindouf hosts the Sahara International Film Festival. Reggane and In Ekker were the sites of 1960’s French nuclear tests.

Algeria’s most interesting locations are also quite far from any major city which adds to travel costs.

Location and film permits are arranged by the local film fixer in Algeria.
