Other films and series that made the list include: “Jerusalema“; “King of Boys“; “Lionheart“; “Mokalik”; Oscar-award winning film “Tsotsi“; “Uncovered“; “The Wedding Party“; “Tjovitjo“; “Castle and Castle“; “The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind“; “Azali“; and “Joy” among others. 

Also available are major international films and series that were either predominantly or completely filmed on the continent, such as “Holiday in the Wild” (South Africa and Zambia); “The Red Sea Diving Resort” (Namibia and South Africa); “Troy: Fall of a City” (South Africa), “Beasts of No Nation” (Ghana), “Blood Diamond” (Morocco, Sierra Leone and South Africa), and documentaries, including Leonardo DiCaprio’s “The Ivory Game” and the Oscar-nominated “Virunga“.
