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.

  • Film Commission supports Green Shooting!

    Green Shooting or Green Producing is one of the most discussed topics concerning our industry - not only in Switzerland but also internationally.

    Compared to other countries Switzerland already produces films much more climate-friendly since years as it is even more cheaper for us to make the movies with the budgets we get. We get electricity on location and try not to work with gennys. We try to keep our vehicle fleet as low as possible and travel to locations in the city via public transportation. We recycle and separate our waste. But also we have to upgrade our awareness and still a lot to do to reduce our CO2 emission.
    We are working on new ideas, inputs and more information on that subject. More will follow on our website.

    But in a first step the Film Commission Zurich (with support from SSFV and Zurich Filmfunds) proudly presents our new location-mugs. Avoid more waste and stop using disposable mugs. You can now get the mugs for your shoot for free from us. Just let us know how many you will need and come by our office to get them. The early bird gets the worm!
