State incentives

Both the Victorian and Federal governments vigorously support the film and television industry through various financial incentives.

Film Victoria

Film Victoria offers a suite of funding programs that can support your talent, your project and your business including the Regional Screen Program which provides funding to regionally based applicants to deliver programs, festivals, exhibitions, events and publications that engage regional Victorian audiences with screen content.

The Victorian Government, through Film Victoria, offers incentives to encourage producers to bring their film and television projects to Melbourne and the State including the Regional Location Assistance Fund (RLAF) which is designed to encourage productions to use locations outside metropolitan Melbourne. RLAF assists projects by offsetting some of the additional costs incurred when filming in regional areas such as accommodation, living overheads and travel.

State Government Agencies and Departments

As well as applying to local councils for filming approvals it may also be necessary to receive consent from other relevant authorities prior to the commencement of filming.
