CENTRAL ATHENS FILM PRODUCTIONS team has worked hard to establish a system that understands the needs of international film productions, supplying top English speaking artistic and technical staff.

We are also the exclusive partner in Greece of PRODUCTION SERVICE NETWORK , an AICP and LMIG Member; a network dedicated to local shoot support in 44 countries around the globe.
Regarding locations, Greece can offer exceptional options which are far beyond from what someone is expecting. Of course, there are plenty of sandy beaches, white and blue villages by the sea and marble ruins, but one should also consider Greece for generic European looking city, modern apartments, trendy shops, cafés, as well as unexpected locations like: sand desert, lunar landscape, medieval castles, etc… Our locations database includes more than 2,500 locations / 200.000 pictures all over the country.
We maintain also the biggest on-line archives for casting in Greece with more than 18.000 persons, (actors, characters, performers, street faces, extras, kids, musicians, presenters, etc). Greece is really a multi-ethnic country so beside Caucasians are easy to find Asians, Blacks, Arabs, Hindis and North European typefaces. All Greek actors speak good to excellent English.
