A total of seventy-four productions were shot in Fiji last year with a budget of over $300m.
According to Film Fiji, $125m was spent directly into the Fijian economy.
Popular reality TV show, Survivor US continued for another year and host Jeff Probst says it has attracted more than a 130 million viewers worldwide
“There are not many places we can go for lots of reasons because of the economy, population, political unrest, weather patterns and Fiji offers us everything that we want. Incredible water that you can see down thirty feet, beaches that are amazing, a government that’s working with us, locals labour that loves to say Bula every day because they’re just happier here.”
Other productions were from India, Australia and Europe including France.
Fiji’s unique scenery especially in the Yasawa’s and Mamanuca Islands have been a popular choice.
Meanwhile, seven major productions so far have received approval from Film Fiji for this year.
