Whatever it takes

Tourists and expats nominate Zurich along with Vienna as the uncontested number one city worldwide since years. And with good reason as Zurich does not only convince on economic grounds, but also functions as a creative and cultural platform. It is about time that filmmakers get to know the advantages of Zurich as a film location.

    In early 2019 the producers associations ARF/FDS, IG, SFA, SFP, GARP and the professional association SSFV agreed on a revision of the General Conditions of Employment GTC Weekly Engagements. The negotiations regarding the General Conditions of Employment for film productions were successfully concluded after more than 2.5 years. The revised GTC Weekly Engagements were ratified by all committees and will take effect by the 1st of January 2020.

    Numerous clauses were adapted to the current labour law-related clauses of the Swiss labour law (ArG) as well as clarifications were made regarding breaks, meals, per diems, travels, housing and commute. The partially revised GTC are completed for an undetermined time and have a mutual cancelation period of 6 months for all associations.

  • New regulations for renting number plates!

     

    We just did it again - we are making filming in Zurich so much easier! Yey to us!

    Due to a wonderful, sympathetic and proactive exchange with the road traffic office canton Zurich we were able to agree on new regulations regarding the rentals of number plates for vehicles used in fictional films.

    If you are in need of number plates please contact the Film Commission Zurich first. We will then transfer your request to the person in charge at the road traffic office.

    Not only the commission but also the rentals are free of charge.

    You can find more information reading the new regulations agreement (so far only in German) or you can contact us directly if you have any questions.
