Mumbai is the hub of Indian film industry. Mumbai has played a pivoted role in the development of cinematography. The first feature film Raja Harishchandra was produced in the city by Dadasaheb Phalke, the father of Indian Cinema. Since then Mumbai has remained a main centre of Indian Film Industry for a period of a century. To provide facilities and concessions to the film industry the State Government has built a Film City at Goregaon.
The Film City is located away from the city life, on a secluded peace of land in the vicinity of Aarey Colony. The Film City is well equipped with large studios for indoor shootings, recording room, a theater, and facilities like garden, lakes, ground for fighting scenes, helipads etc. for outdoor shooting. The plan for this Film City was prepared and executed under the able guidance of late V. Shantaram, the veteran actor, director and film producer. The Film City is not open to admission without a prior permission.
Film City is easily accessible from Mumbai . Mumbai is well connected by Road, Rail and Air.
Accommodation is available at the hotels in Mumbai.
