FILMING ON LOCATION WITH HOODLUM FILM FIXERS JORDAN IN PETRA
FILM LOCATION: PETRA
Jordan, an Arab nation on the east bank of the Jordan River, is defined by ancient monuments, nature reserves and seaside resorts. It’s home to the famed archaeological site of Petra, the Nabatean capital dating to around 300 B.C. Set in a narrow valley with tombs, temples and monuments carved into the surrounding pink sandstone cliffs, Petra earns its nickname, the “Rose City.” Ornate buildings such as Al Khazneh carved in rose sandstone walls is one of the many reasons that almost a million visitors travel to the Kingdom of Jordan each year. Lost for hundreds of years, this World Wonder is well worth its title. From its secret entrance down a narrow Siq, to the stunning Treasury views leaves film makers awe-inspired.
Electronic visas can be obtained on arrival in. Film permits are managed by The Royal Film Commission. Permits take between 5 and 30 days to process so allow enough time when planning a film production in Jordan.
