Geelong, Victoria, Australia offers a diverse and impressive natural landscape from the ocean to the bush. Geelong Waterfront Film fosters Geelong’s film industry by promoting Geelong & surrounds as an unequaled filming destination.

We’re encouraging filmmakers to our region as well as supporting local talent by offering a number of benefits to film and content creators to better the future of the industry including: 

  • A current database of industry participants and related parties including businesses supporting the industry
  • Grant funding opportunities through the Geelong Waterfront Film Foundation
  • Professional development for content creators through hands on workshops, panel discussions, presentations and “Meet Up” networking opportunities as part of our “Unlocking the Secrets” series. 
  • Promotional opportunities
  • Industry, film screenings and other Red Carpet events
  • Film Awards and collaboration with regional Film Festivals 
  •  48-Hour Film Frenzy Shoot Out, October 2024


“I believe that the effects of Geelong Waterfront Film proposed projects, and future grant structure of the Foundation, will go towards fostering a strong, confident, diverse and potentially internationally recognised industry. The idea being proposed is uniquely brilliant, as it looks to support artists not only at the end, when their films are made, but at the crucial start of their journey. ” 

– Leigh Ryan, Freelance Animator
