What We Do

The Film Commission Bayern is the first information and contact point for national and international production companies and acts as an interface and moderator for the production industry and the licensing authorities.

The Film Commission takes care of optimal shooting conditions and in 2014 launched the location initiative FILMkulisse Bayern, which aims to open up all regions of Bavaria for filming.

In addition, it promotes Bavaria as a film and media location at national and international festivals and markets.

As a certified Film Commission we are a member of the AFCI (Association of Film Commissions Inetrnational), EUFCN (European Film Commissions Network) and the GERMAN FILM COMMISSIONS.
