Regional Filming Fund (RFF)
Funding & Incentives | Production | Regional Filming Fund (RFF)
The Regional Filming Fund [RFF] ensures that regional NSW benefits from the growth of the NSW screen sector. The aim of the RFF is to encourage NSW screen productions to film outside metropolitan Sydney by granting assistance to offset costs associated with shooting in regional areas. The RFF is available for filmmakers utilising locations in regional NSW for a minimum of five shooting days. Decisions are made by Screen NSW management for stand alone applications. Where applications are accompanied by applications for other production finance, these applications will be decided by the Screen NSW Board. Funds are provided by way of a grant and will not be recouped by Screen NSW.
