Lights, Camera, Action!: County film office pilot is launched by Norfolk Screen





Norfolk Screen has been awarded a two-year contract to become the official film office for the county.

The Norfolk Film Office pilot programme will proactively promote the county and its assets as a location for TV and film productions, with the combined spend by film and high-end television production in the UK reaching a record £6.27 billion in 2022.

It is hoped that if an increase in economic activity for the county via additional filming activity happens during the pilot, it will confirm the viability of a stand-alone film office in Norfolk.

The combined spend by film and high-end television production in the UK reached a record £6.27 billion in 2022.

Claire Chapman, managing director at Norfolk Screen said, “We are delighted to partner with Norfolk County Council and the local authorities and other stakeholders.

“We also look forward to working together to ensure that productions think first about Norfolk when it comes to filming in the UK.”

Large-scale TV or film productions generate an increase in business for a wide range of companies surrounding a filming location, such as cafés to taxi companies, accommodation businesses and retail.

Fabian Eagle, cabinet member for economic development said: “If, together with the borough, district and city councils, we can maximise on our stunning natural and wide range of built resources with a county-wide film office that makes it easier for production companies to find and work with suitable locations, we achieve economic benefit for many other local businesses whenever a production team comes to the county, and for tourism businesses when viewer visit the location they’ve seen on screen.”

New locations wishing to register with the office should visit the Norfolk Screen website.
