Film Otago Southland is a not-for-profit Trust supporting screen production in the region, in collaboration with the Queenstown and Dunedin regional film offices. We help connect you with the right people and services to smooth the road to your next film production in the Otago and Southland region.

We can help you with enquiries related to film permits, locations, location access, crew and equipment, and more.

Why film here?

Our region's production hubs in Queenstown and Dunedin are complemented by internationally renown locations a short distance away - Milford Sound, Mount Aspiring National Park, the gold rush towns of Central Otago, The Catlins Coast, Oamaru's Victorian Whitestone Precinct and more.

A key strength of our region is opposite seasons to the Northern hemisphere—snow in July and flowers in February for that vital scheduling edge. Our resident and highly experienced crew base is uniquely placed to service all of your production needs, even when filming in rugged remote locations.

Recent features, including MULAN, MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - FALLOUT, A WRINKLE IN TIME, ALIEN - COVENANT and PETE’S DRAGON, continue to build on the legacy of the legendary HOBBIT and LORD OF THE RINGS trilogies. Brands such as Samsung, Subaru, Yamaha, Audi, Corona Beer, Red Bull and many more nurture our international TVC market.

Get in touch today to find out how we can help with your film production or film business.
