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.
