Location Scouts and Inbounds Program

Screen NSW provides location and production support to encourage screen projects to film in Sydney and NSW.

The objectives of the program include:

  • To market NSW as Australia’s premier screen production destination;
  • To increase the State’s market share of film and television production by attracting potential projects to film in NSW;
  • To familiarise practitioners with NSW locations for their projects;
  • To provide an opportunity to connect local and international practitioners with local technical and creative talent, studio and post-production and visual effects facilities for their projects and to support new and sustainable partnerships between organisations of International significance and local practitioners and facilities.

The program offers long-form footloose productions scouting assistance for location surveys for eligible projects and may include covering some of the costs associated with on-ground travel including accommodation, domestic flights, vehicle hire and location manager services.  Eligible projects are feature films, tele-movies, mini-series, TV series or reality programs.

The program is open to projects prior to commencement of pre-production and prior to or during financing. For international inbound visits, Screen NSW generally works with AusFilm to facilitate a suitable itinerary, however, enquiries can also be made direct to Screen NSW Production Attraction & Incentives area.
