Head of Office
The Film Commission supports film productions in Central Switzerland at all stages: from development and location scouting to production, post-production and promotion planning.
From 2010 to 2016, the City of Lucerne, in cooperation with Luzern Tourismus AG, supervised film productions in the Lucerne region, including 17 episodes of the crime series "Tatort". The two organizations acted as Filmlocation Lucerne in the process. In 2016, together with other partners, they founded the Lucerne-Central Switzerland Film and Television Association as the sponsor of the film location, which from then on will operate as the Film Commission Lucerne & Central Switzerland. In this way, the sponsor signals that its commission wants to be active in all six cantons of Central Switzerland.
As a motor for film in Central Switzerland, it brings together all the organizations and companies in the regional film industry, thereby strengthening its network and promoting the regional economy (trade, tourism, creative industries).
As a partner of the European Film Academy, the Film Commission Lucerne & Central Switzerland will organize the European Film Awards in Lucerne in 2024.
The Film Commission Lucerne and Central Switzerland works on behalf of the Lucerne-Central Switzerland Film and Television Association.
