A Film Friendly City

A Film Friendly City Hobart abounds with fascinating historic nooks and crannies, colonial urban architecture, dense majestic woodlands, beautiful sweeping sandy beaches, enchanting secluded bays, tree-filled parks and, of course, a towering picturesque mountain – sometimes snow-capped - as its imposing backdrop.

The City of Hobart wants to make this rich and varied patrimony readily and simply available for local, national and international screen production.

We will actively promote and support the use of the city for film and photo shoots by working directly with production companies in the application of necessary permits. This will include reducing “red tape”, providing experienced staff to assist in planning and successful conclusion, and helping identify non-council authorities and other supporters.
