The film industry in Morocco has, thus far, generated $100 million this year, four times more than the first nine months of 2013.

According to figures from the Moroccan Cinema Centre, investments in foreign films increased by 420% in the first nine months of 2014 compared to the same period in 2013.
“Right now, with the present global situation, providing security is very important and Morocco is aware of it,” said Abderrazak Zitouni, head of Ouarzazate Film Commission.
Highly acclaimed by Hollywood producers, Morocco is one of the most popular filming destinations and home to many successful international films. The most recent movie filmed in Morocco is the American film “Son of God,” produced by Roma Downey and Mark Burnett, released in February 2014.
In addition to the professional cinema centers like Oscar in Ouarzazate, Morocco started offering public scenes such as neighborhoods and highways for filming.
Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise and his crew are in Morocco to shoot scenes of the fifth installment of the “Mission Impossible” series.
The filming of some scenes of “Mission Impossible 5” took place in the cities of Rabat, Casablanca, and the highway bypass section of Marrakech-Agadir.
