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.

  • 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.




Sadly we had to say goodbye to our Swiss TATORT playing Lucerne - even more are we now looking forward to welcome the production in Zurich! With new team of investigators played by the wonderful actresses Carol Schuler and Anna Pieri Zuercher the TATORT just moved to Zurich and is building its new police station in the middle of the city.
Preproduction has started - filming will begin in the middle of November.
