Screen NSW

Screen NSW champions creative innovation and economic sustainability for the state’s content creators and digital storytellers. 

As a NSW Government agency, we lead industry change to foster local content for a global audience, no matter the size of the screen.

From ground-breaking storytelling to cutting-edge digital games and post-production VFX, we help develop the people and places that make NSW the premier screen destination in Australia.

Location incentives, filming grants, and industry rebates attract major international investment and boost local production.

Screen NSW. A place for every story.
