Australia's sun-soaked Gold Coast is set to become a major player in the global film industry, thanks to a new 30% Location Offset. This exciting incentive is luring international blockbusters, creating thousands of jobs, and boosting the local economy from bustling film sets to vibrant cafes and hotels. The new offset, applicable to projects starting after July 1, 2023, comes with exciting new opportunities and requirements:

  • Increased Thresholds: Productions must meet higher spending thresholds, ensuring a substantial investment in the Australian economy.

  • Training & Workforce Development: Productions are required to invest in training programs, fostering the next generation of Australian filmmakers and crew.

  • Local Talent & Businesses: The offset encourages collaboration with Australian post-production companies and requires detailed reporting on local employment, strengthening the entire industry.

But the benefits extend far beyond the film set. The Gold Coast's diverse landscapes, from pristine beaches to lush rainforests, offer the perfect backdrop for any genre. With the added incentive of a 30% rebate, it's the ideal time for filmmakers to bring their visions to life in this stunning location.

This isn't just about Hollywood blockbusters; it's about empowering local talent, driving innovation, and boosting tourism. From bustling cafes and hotels to transport and construction, the entire community will thrive.
