Filming Locations in Greece
Greece has massive landscapes that would be fit for any type of TVC or film production. Whether you’re looking for ancient buildings or ruins with some history from within them, or seascapes of the city for your vacation-themed getaway films; maybe a stranded scene on an island like in “Triangle of Sadness” a 2022 Plam d’Or Winner by Ruben Oslunt. Greece can offer you all the scene options for your film production.
The ancient city of Athens is Greece’s capital city, and probably the most famous city for many producers looking for a location for their film production. This particular city fits any genre of film, whether it’s action, drama, or even sci-fi, all of them would look outstanding with Athens as the set. “Crime of the Future” a sci-fi film by David Cronenberg is one of the best examples that any genre can be filmed in Athens.
Mykonos’s nickname is “The Island of the Winds”, due to the very strong winds that blow through the island. It’s a great location for your film production that needs a vacation set or an action thriller that would get a unique look with strong winds on the battles grounds. One of the best action-thriller movies “The Bourne Identity,” used this island at the end scene of the film.
Another famous Greek island in Greece is Spetses, this island held 2 Netflix film productions in one year. From the most anticipated sequel of the “Murder Mystery Whodunit Films – Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery” by Rian Johnson; to the directional debut by Maggie Gyllenhaal “The Lost Daughter.”
Evia may be the closest Greek Island to Athens, but yet it’s still one of the secret islands. With it not being famous, it automatically becomes a more quiet and more peaceful island; that is perfect for shooting any film production! “Triangle of Sadness” a 2022 Plam d’Or winner used the Chiliadou beach on this particular island for a stranded scene in the third act of the film.
Thessaloniki also known as Thessalonica, is the second-largest city in Greece. Famous for its historical place and old buildings from ancient times. The fourth installment of “The Expendables” was shot here in Thessalonica.
