Cambodia is fast becoming one of the most popular destinations for both film and commercial productions in SE Asia. With its range of stunning and beautiful locations it easy to see why more and more film makers are choosing Cambodia over other countries in the region. From the epic Ankorian Temples in Siem Reap to the sandy beaches of Koh Rong, the majestic Royal Palace in Phnom Penh and the picturesque waterfalls in Mondulkiri, Cambodia has everything to offer film makers looking for a unique vision for their shoot.
Over the past decade the amount of international productions filmed in Cambodia has more than doubled and the numbers are on the rise as film makers are discovering the jaw dropping beauty that this country has to offer. The first major international production to be filmed in Cambodia was Tomb Raider in 2001 when the producers, looking for a temple which was both unique and spectacular, decided to move its production from Pinewood Studios to Cambodia for the scenes at the Angkor Wat complex in Siem Reap. Since 2001 there have been several international film productions shot in Cambodia including; Wish You Were Here, Ruin, Same Same But Different, City of Ghosts and Two Brothers. In additional to these films there have been a host of television shows and documentaries such as Naked and Afraid, River Monsters, Survivor, Gordon Ramseys Great Escape, 50 Ways to Kill Your Mammy and By Any Means with Charley Boorman.
