Queenstown Lakes

Filmmakers love Queenstown Lakes.

Queenstown has been an established screen production centre for more than forty years. Its internationally renowned locations and huge choice of accommodation and entertainment options make Queenstown popular with all members of a production. From A-list stars to producers looking after their bottom line, everyone wants to come back.

The industry is sustained by regular television commercials with international calibre production companies calling Queenstown home. Feature films such as Mission Impossible: Fallout, Lord of the Rings, WolverineThe Hobbit, and Pete's Dragon have also had a considerable impact on the region.

The wider Queenstown Lakes region also encompasses towns like Glenorchy, Wanaka and Arrowtown, known for their mountain scenery and small-town charm.

With more than 120 locally-based crew and an extensive range of specialist equipment, the region offers a complete turnkey package.
