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.

  • Swiss filmmakers agains No-Billag!


    On the 4th of march Switzerland will be voting for or against the continuation of the SRG. In the case of an admission of the NoBillag-Initiative there will be no Television or Radio subsidised by the State anymore. Meaning: no Service Public and a huge (financial) loss for Swiss culture - especially the Swiss film industry.

    The initiative endangers directly 6'900 jobs of the SRG, but 13'500 in total. Producers, technicians, actors, editors and suppliers depending on the film industry are directly affected and even see their existence threatened to a high degree.

    To get the attention Swiss filmmakers gathered around director Martin Guggisberg and created (free of charge) three spots.

    We would like to thank ALL OF YOU for your service in this important fight! We will vote NO on the 4th of march!

    You can find all the spots and further information here: https://www.filmschaffende-gegen-nobillag.ch/
