Jamaica is a creative hub and a cultural superpower! That’s why we have dedicated an entire sector to promote Jamaica’s unique film destinations and artistic flair through digital art and music.
Our Film, Animation and Music (FAM) sector is the third largest contributor to the island’s GDP. It also has a significant multiplier effect on the economy through its seamless linkages with other industries such as tourism and manufacturing.
When it comes to talent, our island is home to exceptional musicians, fine and performing artists and film professionals.
While music has traditionally been Jamaica’s most exportable creative product, the film and animation sectors demonstrate significant economic potential for the future. Our rustic countryside, majestic mountain ranges, white and black sand beaches, secret coves, dramatic cliffs, mini-jungles and historic edifices have made the country an ideal location for filming and creative projects since the early 1900s. In 2019, the high-profile James Bond movie was filmed on the Eastern end of the island- the home of the creator of the series, Ian Flemming.
