Regional Filming Fund (RFF)
The Regional Filming Fund offsets costs associated with shooting in regional areas of NSW. Regional NSW is defined as all areas in NSW outside the Sydney Metro area (excluding the ACT).
Applicants may request up to 35% of the budgeted NSW Regional Spend.
NSW Regional Spend is the total of the below the line shooting expenses directly associated with filming in regional NSW. Eligible NSW Regional Spend expenses are limited to:
- location fees
- travel (for cast and crew traveling from other parts of NSW)
- per diems
- local suppliers & services (e.g. construction contractors, security, traffic control etc.)
- salaries for regionally based cast and crew
Regional spend does not include any above-the-line expenses (including development expenses), indirect costs, company overheads, contingency or post-production expenses.
Support is provided as a grant. The maximum grant per production is $100,000.
