New $12m studio for Brisbane

Brisbane is to get a new $12M film and television production studio.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk announced the news in Hollywood as part of her trade mission to the USA.

The funding will allow for a fit-for-purpose studio for small film and television productions.

“Queensland’s screen industry is thriving, and my Government’s support for this new studio will bring a new wave of investment in the creative jobs of the future,” Premier Palaszczuk said.

“Queensland is recognised as a production paradise and film-friendly state, and we are known internationally for our diverse and unrivalled natural locations, strong financial incentives, world-class facilities and award-winning talent and crew.”

The announcement follows an Advance Queensland Screen Industry 10-Year Roadmap and Action Plan, consulting with Queensland screen practitioners.

“We have listened to that feedback and are proud to be able to help support a resilient and innovative Queensland screen industry with this investment,” the Premier said.

“We are excited to be able to provide a space for both established and up-and-coming content producers to work and collaborate.”

The location of the new studio and initial tenants are expected to be announced in the new financial year.


  1. Hopefully this will lead to more Australian production.
    Although, $12mil doesn’t sound like much when you could spend just that on sound-proofing and air-conditioning! 😉
