City of Gold Coast New Initiative – Film and Television


A thriving film and television industry is critical to the Gold Coast. To support the industry further, City of Gold Coast is trialling a new initiative with the aim of further connecting and enhancing the local industry.
A dedicated Gold Coast Film and Television Industry Office is now open for bookings at the Robina Community Centre. This office is available free of charge, to the local, interstate and overseas film and television industry, to utilise as a creative hub to progress future productions. It is a shared office, to be used as a hot desk for people visiting the city and for the local film and television industry to undertake one-off or regular meetings. It is not the intent however, for daily ongoing use by one individual or group.

This initiative will be trialled until 30 June 2016, when a review will be undertaken as to its success. We urge the local industry to support this initiative and make a booking to use this space.

This initiative is supported by Screen Queensland and Village Roadshow Studios.
