About Us

VicScreen. You’ll find us where the action is.

 

VicScreen is the Victorian Government’s creative and economic screen development agency. Behind the scenes, supporting professionals, infrastructure, projects and events – elevating Victoria as a global screen destination. 

Building on our rich legacy of screen industry support, Film Victoria has evolved into VicScreen, better representing the entire screen ecosystem and promoting Victoria as a world-leading centre for screen.

You’ll find us wherever the action is. Investing in production and content development. Industry placements. Filming incentives. Location assistance. Skills training. Industry events. Partnership activities. And anything else that boosts Victoria’s standing as a global screen powerhouse. 

Whether you’re in planning, production, animation, post-production, visual effects or games development – we’re helping behind the scenes and across the screen ecosystem.
