Film attraction

The City supports the film industry and has an established film incentive program to attract and support production companies looking to film in the city.

This is unique for local government in Australia and is independent from the filming incentives provided through Screen Australia and Screen Queensland.

Our program incorporates a suite of services, one component being a financial assistance package that may assist you to bring your production to the Gold Coast. Through our relationships with an extensive network of industry professionals, we are also able to connect you with relevant expertise in the city to ensure you can get your production up and running as smoothly as possible.

Eligibility is based on:

  • the approximate value of the production (minimum AU$1.5 million spend on the Gold Coast)
  • duration of the production and approximate percentage conducted on the Gold Coast
  • approximate number of jobs and economic impact created on the Gold Coast during these periods.

Applications must be made prior to confirming a Gold Coast shoot.
