Film Commission Bayern

You have questions about Bavaria as a film location or need assistance or contacts for the production of your film project? The Film Commission Bayern is the first contact and information point for national and international production companies and acts as a gateway for information and moderation between the production sector and local authorities. The service and information activities are based on an excellent network in all regions in Bavaria. The Film Commission strives to assure optimal shooting conditions and works to make all areas of Bavaria accessible for film shoots. Regular workshops are held with the goal of creating points of contact and a film-relevant infrastructure all across Bavaria.


Once a year, the Film Commission presents a “Film Location of the Year” award within the framework of the location initiative “Filmkulisse Bayern” - a joint project with Bavaria Tourism. The award recognizes a city or region which has excelled as a production location. Moreover, there are more and more regions which market their shooting locations for tourism purposes. All information about the various shooting locations is available in the LOCATION DATABASE FILMKULISSE BAYERN.


The Film Commission participates at international trade shows and festivals to promote Bavaria as a production location. For teams planning to shoot in Bavaria, the Commission also offers pre-scouting for project and initial acquisitioning and organizes location tours to undiscovered shooting locations all over Bavaria.
