The NRW Film Commission is a division of the Film und Medienstiftung NRW GmbH and the contact point for producers and creatives wanting to shoot and work in North Rhine-Westphalia. German and foreign production companies from the audiovisual sector receive information about shooting locations and studios. The NRW Film Commission establishes contacts free of charge and without any bureaucracy and acts together with the network of Film Cities as an interface to the authorities.
The Film Commission operates the www.locationnrw.de platform where the Film Cities and location scouts are able to establish the contacts to locations. A collaboration that is unique in Europe.
