Study to assess viability of a film and television industry

Gosford Council will complete a study that assesses how to make the Central Coast, especially Gosford City, ‘fi lm friendly’ and encourage more screen production in the region.

The Central Coast is seen as having a competitive advantage over Sydney as a production location for the Australian fi lm and television industry as well as providing a broad variety of fi lming locations, abundant accommodation and highspeed National Broadband Network access. Attracting more screen production to the region would also have positive fl ow on effects for tourism, employment and the local economy. The study will also advise on the viability of setting up a local screen authority or management group, which would oversee, market and implement the proposed ‘fi lm friendly’ policy.
