The Film Office provides advice and information on all film related issues in the North East of Scotland. We offer assistance with locations, sourcing crew and equipment and provide business advice for those who look to acquire funding for a particular project.

The Film Office is a successful partnership between Aberdeen City Council and Aberdeenshire Council, which together provides a strategic focus for the development of the Film and TV industry in Aberdeen City and Shire.

Partnerships are key to our success and we hold thriving relationships with development agencies such as Scottish Screen and Peacock Visual Arts. We also have key links to all Film Offices across Scotland and work closely with tourism agencies.
