The Mongolian National Film Commission was found in 2017 with the support of the office of the President of Mongolia. Our mission and sole purpose is to promote Mongolia to the world as the finest destination for film, television, documentaries, music videos, and commercials as well as to be the bridge that connects and opens up opportunities for local and foreign branches of the entertainment industry.
Mongolia is a four seasoned, extraordinary country with cities and provinces surrounded by eccentric nature and wildlife that can be transformed and captured as anywhere in the world. At the heart of the world and center of Asia, with its tremendously rich history of warriors and culture, Mongolia is a perfect location for filming.

LISTICLES: 3 REASONS TO VISIT AND FILM IN MONGOLIA
A closer exploration into Mongolia
1. DISTINCT LOCATIONS
Amazing untouched virgin lands as well as eccentric wildlife surrounding its beautiful city.
The Mongolian Gobi Desert is the largest in Asia, spanning over 1,500 km and the 5th largest in the world. Varying from the rocky White Stuppa, Flaming rocks, to the enormous sand dunes, the weather can be hottest in summer reaching 40 degrees Celsius and -40 degrees in the Winter.
Khuvsgul Lake is the largest fresh water lake in Mongolia with a length of 136km and a depth of 267m.
There are many forest & mountain zones that have frozen valleys left from the glaciers and have eternal snow/cold weather throughout the year but the Altai Tavan Bogd Mountains are the highest point of the country reaching 4,374 m and the warmest reaching -5 degrees Celsius.
Mongolian steppe covers nearly almost all of its eastern region and is home to distinct flora and fauna. The land provides most domestic livestock.
2. GET TO KNOW THE NOMADIC LIFESTYLE
Foreign productions can explore the historical traditions, culture, and nomadic lifestyles while working around the countryside! Even if you travel the whole world, visiting 195 countries, you will never find a 72 year old woman, wearing her traditional "deel" serving fermented milk drinks on a table full of dried goat milk dairy candies and snacks in her fully furnished ger (yurt) and her livestock of cows, horses, goats, and sheep chilling outside just like how it was thousands of years ago. Only in Mongolia, will you find such admirable lifestyles some in the city, and most in the beautiful countrysides. If you are lucky, make sure to attend one of the traditional holidays of Tsagaan Sar (Lunar New Year in February) or the Naadam (July).
3. EXPLORE THE CITY LIFE AND COMMUNITY
Not many people know about the rapid development of Mongolia and how its city & people are always evolving. We guarantee your trip around the city and countryside of Mongolia will be an extraordinary experience full of unforgettable memories. Your trip around the capital city of Ulaanbaatar can be a jaw-opening experience of shopping around the different malls such as Shangri-La Mall to the famous Black Markets, a trip to all the historical museums of ancient kings, monasteries, and general history, as well as museums of animals and dinosaur bones, and even the ancient filmmaking museum. UB also has beautiful art galleries and many film festivals throughout the year. Some famous festivals are in the months of October where the annual Ulaanbaatar International Film Festival is conducted and in June, when the Altan Khalis Independent Film Festival happens. Just outside the capital city 55km away, Tsonjin Boldog at Terelj, a great statue of the famous emperor of Genghis Khan is located along with beautiful national parks, 13th century themed camps, and many other activities of archery, horse/camel riding trips to the Terelj river are available with nearby camps, luxury resorts, and hotels.
