Interested in collaborating with us?

Are you a council or organisation that would like to be part of our film friendly network and have your location promoted? Then look no further, we’re here to help!

Imagine a feature film produced in the heart of your local area. Think of the extras needed for crowd scenes, the catering for hungry crew, the cars hired from a local business, the hotels filled with actors, the equipment hired locally. The benefits to the local economy are clear. Not to mention the publicity and knock-on effects to the economy.

Working in collaboration with councils and the community in Sussex we’ve already generated over £118 million pounds for the local economy.

Become part of our Film Friendly Sussex network an all inclusive service for filmmakers and photographers.
