Screen NSW

Company overview

NSW is the leading state for screen production in Australia, with over almost 60% of people employed in the screen production sector in Australia based here. The focus of our small but nimble and energetic team at Screen NSW ensures that NSW maintains its status as the number one state for screen production. In the current financial year Screen NSW is investing almost $100 million to support the screen industry in NSW.
This includes $35 million in new funding for the Made in NSW fund, support for the Post, Digital and Visual Effects sector through a 10% rebate and more than $12 million for other screen programs. Australia is in the middle of global production boom, thanks to competitive financial incentives, a favourable international currency exchange rate, support provided by the Government, and our relative success in managing the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition to support for international production, Screen NSW continues to support and prioritise local production and the development of local stories.
The growth of local and international streaming services and their increased content requirements has increased opportunities for local production companies to reach audiences around Australia and across the globe.

Australia’s own Hollywood

25-06-2021

New South Wales is relishing its growing reputation as ‘Hollywood down under’ while helping local producers to get their stories on screen.

 

With half of Hollywood seemingly choosing to hunker down during the pandemic in Byron Bay, the popular coastal town in New South Wales (NSW), Australia’s oldest state is seeing unprecedent demand for shooting space as the country’s production boom continues.

 

Numerous major US productions relocated their shoots after seeing the potential upside to filming down under and many picked parts of NSW as locations, including the forthcoming Hulu original Nine Perfect Strangers, starring Nicole Kidman and Melissa McCartney.

 

Upcoming Netflix thriller series Pieces of Her, meanwhile, swapped Vancouver for NSW and is one of numerous productions currently filming in the state, drawn not only by its relative freedom from Covid-19 but also its climate, talent and generous screen incentives.

 

These can be combined with the national location incentives on offer, which were given a A$400m (US$309m) boost by the Aussie government in response to Covid-19.
