Website to promote Northern Rivers to filmmakers worldwide
SCREENWORKS is hoping to boost the number of films and television series being produced on the Northern Rivers with a new and more comprehensive website.
A key feature of the website is an online Locations Database that can be used by production companies and filmmakers around the world to find the perfect Northern Rivers location for their production.
The database is also linked to Screen NSW's Reel Scout database.
Screenworks general manager Ken Crouch said more production in the region would mean more jobs for local screen industry workers and flow-on benefits to local businesses and other industries.
The addition of a new member directory will also make it easier for production companies and filmmakers to find the crew and creative talent they need locally.
Screenworks is a home-grown not-for-profit membership-based organisation that has supported the likes of Cate McQuillen with the development of the digital Emmy award- winning children's TV hit, dirtgirlworld, and Jon Bell with the recent ABC TV series, The Gods of Wheat Street.
For over a decade it has supported the local screen industry and promoted screen culture in the region by presenting regional film premiere events.
