Why it is so easy to film in the beautiful nations capital.

The ACT Region offers native bushland, scenic coastlines, alpine peaks and sweeping rural plains – a region of natural diversity with the modern cityscape of Canberra at its heart.

We have worked hard to ensure the ACT Region is incredibly accessible, filming here is easy – Let us help you.

The Australian Capital is the ideal place to set your film within the many treasures of the surrounding region. The sapphire blue waters and beaches of the South Coast, the rural tranquillity of Southern Highlands and the highest alpine peaks in the Snowy Mountains are within comfortable driving distance of the city. The region is home to historic townships, unspoilt nature, excellent wineries, world-class arts and crafts and gourmet produce.

Screen Canberra actively encourages commercial filming and endeavours to make the production process as easy as possible in the ACT. We can provide location advice and  assistance with obtaining  access to Territory and Commonwealth controlled locations.

Filmmakers and production companies interested in locations found within the ACT are encouraged to browse through our Location Gallery and to contact the location owner directly to confirm filming permission requirements.

If required we can also provide professional scouting services for an extra charge based on an hourly rate.
