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.
The corona pandemic has a direct impact on the preparation and implementation of film productions. Current requirements for hygiene standards and minimization of contact present film teams and service providers with special challenges. In order to film under pandemic conditions, almost all procedures have to be re-evaluated and adjusted. This includes location selection, catering, mobility, logistics, accommodation and services. The film office is a competent partner for the production teams on site.
