Acknowledgement of Country

We acknowledge the Aboriginal people of what is now called New South Wales and value their ongoing connections to country, community and culture that have existed across millennia. We celebrate through these connections, Aboriginal cultural strength, resilience and contemporary creativity.

We respect the role that Aboriginal creatives play in contributing to a deeper sense of identity and place through sharing knowledge, skills and stories and the important role that Aboriginal Elders are in guiding this process.

Overview - Production Finance Funding

The Regional Filming Fund offsets costs associated with shooting in regional areas of NSW. Regional NSW is defined as all areas in NSW outside the Sydney Metro area (excluding the ACT). Click here for a map of the NSW local government areas and the Sydney Metro area.
