Filming in Biblical Landscapes

Category: Location Guide Israel


Film crews often come to Israel looking for biblical landscapes.

General shots of mountains are easy to come by, and they’re also locales in Israel that specialize in reenacting biblical imagery. One such place is Nazareth Village, located in the center of the town of Nazareth in northern Israel. Nazareth Village is particularly suited for filming reenactments of stories from the Bible with its biblical animals, tents, costumes, and stone houses.

The highly experienced management team at the Nazareth Village can prepare specific props based on the needs of each production. They also can schedule men, women, and child actors to play biblical figures, and there is no need for special permits. By bringing your crew to one place that caters to your specific Film Production needs, you can save time. In short, with everything under one roof, Nazareth Village is a great way to film biblical-related material in Israel.

Another option is the biblical landscape reserve Neot Kedumim – a good choice if you are looking to film biblical scenery. Located halfway between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, this vast artificial garden is complete with biblical plants and animals. The staff at Neot Kedumim are also experts on ancient agricultural methods. Neot Kedumim is ideal if you need general footage for biblical-looking shots.
