Gold Coast Film Commission

The Gold Coast is the only local government in Australia to provide a Screen Attraction Program that includes financial incentives. These incentive grants are based on the value of production undertaken on the Gold Coast and are in addition to the incentives provided by the Queensland and Australian Governments.
Ausfilm Member since 2003

The Gold Coast Film Commission specialises in providing production companies with information regarding the capabilities of the local industry, financial incentives to demonstrate their commitment to your production and a one-stop-shop to arrange film permits, road closures and access to city locations.

The Gold Coast is world-renowned for its beautiful sub- tropical climate and diverse range of accessible locations which allows for any landscape to be replicated within the region. From emotive city or country scenes, beautiful beaches and sub-tropical rainforests, to a unique blend of architecture, scenic roads and city locations, the Gold Coast offers production companies easily accessible locations within a 30-minute radius of the Village Roadshow Studios.
