Grenada Film Locations
Grenada is a Caribbean nation made up of three larger islands (Grenada, Carriacou, and Petite Martinique) and several smaller islands. Grenada is a mountainous island, known for its lush rainforests, paradise waterfalls, white sand beaches, turquoise waters, rare tropical flowers and fragrant spice trees. Also known as “Spice Island”, Grenada is a big producer of nutmeg, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, cocoa and sugarcane. Grenada’s most beautiful beaches can be found at Grand Anse, Levera Bay and Morne Rouge. Paradise island waterfall looks include Annandale Falls, Concord Falls and Mount Carmel Waterfall. Grenada’s coral reefs offer impressive underwater photography. The capital St. George’s is a pretty town with a picturesque horseshoe-shaped harbour.
Grenada Film Location Permits
Most locations are possible given time, money and the right approach. Please contact us for location specific information.
When To Shoot?
Grenada enjoys a year-round warm, tropical climate. Conditions are humid around the coast but become considerably cooler and wetter toward the mountainous interior. Grenada lies on the edge of the hurricane belt. The wet season runs from June to December when conditions are hot, humid and short bursts of heavy rainfall occur frequently. The dry season, and best time to film for weather, runs from January to May when showers are few and temperatures are cooled by trade winds. For monthly weather statistics please see here.
Events of interest to filmmakers and photographers include the Port Louis Grenada Sailing Festival in January / February, and Spice Mas (Grenada Carnival) in August.
Costs & Tax Incentives
Costs. Locations, local talent and support crew are inexpensive but since little to no filming infrastructure exists all key crew and equipment must be brought in from abroad. Our Grenadan fixer will negotiate local deals and provide the appropriate level of production support to match every budget.
Tax Incentives. At present there are no tax incentives for foreign commercials or feature films shooting in Grenada.
Film Crew & Talent
Crews. Grenada has a very small pool of directors, videographers and stills photographers. Key crew must be brought in from abroad.
Contact us if you are looking for a director, DP, photographer, videographer (cameraman / camera operator), camera assistant (focus puller), sound operator, grip, gaffer, stylist, hair and makeup, PA / runner, production driver, or any other film crew for your shoot in Grenada.
