Welcome to nordmedia Film Commission with the federal states of Bremen and Lower Saxony!

We are two in one and there is so much more to discover! Bremen and Lower Saxony offer a unique diversity and varied landscapes: With us you will find the North Sea coast and the East Frisian islands with wide sandy beaches and the Wadden Sea as well as the highest mountains in Northern Germany, the Harz, with its forests, lakes and impressive mines.

You can shoot in harbors with rustic fishing trawlers or huge container terminals. We have numerous historic castles and half-timbered towns, as well as urban architecture and industrial backdrops. In Bremen and Lower Saxony, rural idyll and big city flair are close together. This diversity, combined with a film-friendly atmosphere, has already convinced many film, TV and streaming productions.

The nordmedia Film Commission is the contact partner in all matters concerning film shooting in Lower Saxony and Bremen. As an interface between location providers, the media branch and local authorities, it offers free consultation and information services. It supports production companies in their search for shooting locations and establishes production-relevant contacts to local service providers and granters of filming permits.

In order to draw attention to the advantages of the states of Bremen and Lower Saxony as interesting and diverse shooting locations, the nordmedia Film Commission also advertises its work by way of publications as well as fairs and festivals in association with the German Film Commissions and is a member of the European Film Commissions Network (EUFCN)
