Whatever it takes

Tourists and expats nominate Zurich along with Vienna as the uncontested number one city worldwide since years. And with good reason as Zurich does not only convince on economic grounds, but also functions as a creative and cultural platform. It is about time that filmmakers get to know the advantages of Zurich as a film location.

  • New Protection Concept by Swissfilm Association

    In consultation with the Department of Economics of the canton of Zurich the Swissfilm Assoication published a protection concept under Covid-19 influence for commercial and corporate film shootings. The protection concept will be constantly updated regarding the possible coming easing restrictions by the government. Updates will be communicated on their website.

    The Department of Economics of the canton of Zurich also confirmed that TV and film productions can use the protection concept of the Swissfilm Association as well, as long as they won't have published a protection concept on their own. A special task force is currently working on a protection concept for TV and film productions and will publish it in the coming weeks.

    If your production gets inspected you have to show them the protection concept printed out.

    We will keep you updated on this matter on our website and our Facebook-channel.

    We hope you all are well and we are happy that productions slowly get picked up again.
