Glasgow Film Office are happy to advise on crews, facilities, travel times, accommodation, weather and any other questions you have about shooting in Glasgow, Scotland.


Thinking of locating your production in Glasgow? Glasgow Film Office can provide support to productions by offering an organised recce for key personnel. The recce will give you and your colleagues a chance to see what Glasgow has to offer in terms of locations, crew and facilities. If you decide to shoot in the city, Glasgow Film Office can then help towards subsidising the cost of hiring local facilities/services for productions based in Glasgow. Please email for further details and conditions of eligibility for these funds.

Scotland & UK
Scotland is part of the UK and therefore all UK film tax incentives and UK co-production treaties apply in Scotland, further information can be found on the BFI website

Both Creative Scotland and the BFI also offer various types of funding from development through to production. Their websites will give you a comprehensive guide to the funding schemes available.


Glasgow plays host to numerous features and TV dramas each year and both BBC Scotland and Scottish Television have their headquarters in Glasgow. This has helped to create a crew base of 600+ skilled crew in almost all grades and departments and a robust facilities and services sector.

Further information about crew, facilities and services can be found in the Scottish film directory Film Bang.
