Council Information Form

Established in 1972 as the first screen agency in Australia, the South Australian Film Corporation (SAFC) is South Australia’s leading screen authority, supporting, championing and promoting the state’s screen sector for over 50 years.

On behalf of the State Government, the SAFC administers funds, rebates and programs which stimulate screen production activity in South Australia, and operates the Adelaide Studios screen production facilities at Glenside.

The SAFC also works to promote South Australia as a premier filming location for film and TV projects, regularly engaging with local and international producers and production companies who are thinking about filming in the state – from Adelaide to right across the regions.

The SAFC is currently working in partnership with South Australian councils and tourism bodies to launch Film Friendly State, a new initiative to highlight South Australia’s diverse range of beautiful filming locations, and provide useful information for film and TV productions wanting to film here.
