The city of Görlitz is one of the most attractive film locations in Germany, and as the first European Film location of the decade, offers optimal conditions for film productions.
Starting February 1st 2021 there’s a film office in Görlitz. This competence center is the point of contact for film management under pandemic conditions. Unique in Germany, the service is individual and personal, tailored to the needs of film productions and can answer your questions about working in Saxony and the immediate vicinity of Dresden. The film office also supports safe working during the shoot.
With all our strength, extensive experience and professional network, we support film production companies and filmmakers on site with individual and personal service in the preparation and implementation of filming. Service providers, motivators and other players in Görlitz and the region work together to expand the film-specific infrastructure in order to strengthen Görlitz as a film production location and to be able to offer the best conditions. Sustainability is important to us. Thanks to the connection of the film office to Europastadt GörlitzZgorzelec GmbH, local film productions benefit from direct cooperation with the location marketing and business development departments as well as the offices of the Görlitz city administration.
The Filmbüro Görlitz maintains an intensive exchange with the Saxon Film Academy and supports the further education institution to the best of its ability, for example in the search for internships for graduates.
