Day One - The Business of Managing Film & TV Locations

A seminar on the why and how of attracting film and television production to the Dubbo region of NSW. Delivered by Screenworks and supported by Dubbo Filmmakers, Screen NSW and Dubbo Regional Council.


Dubbo and the Great Western Plains has a vast array of natural, cultural and built attractions. These combined with easy access via road and air are excellent resources to encourage TV and Film producers to choose to film their next job in your region. With considered promotion of these significant assets, there is potential to attract more inbound screen productions, bolster the local economy and create more jobs.


This seminar is aimed at filmmakers, aspiring location scouts, government location liaison officers, tourism officers, event officers as well as private and public property owners.


Attendees will find out about the role of the location manager, how productions source and secure regional filming locations in NSW, the aesthetic and logistical requirements of filming locations and also how to publicize their property or land to the screen industry.


Ticket price includes a light lunch.
