Screen Suffolk - Suffolk’s new county-wide film service
We’re on a mission to make Suffolk the most film-friendly county in the UK and in turn, get more film-makers and photographers to come here.
This activity can bring significant benefits to a region, so we want to bring these benefits to Ipswich and Suffolk!
We’re picking up momentum in Ipswich and have had filming and photoshoots taking place across the town. A brownfield site was recently used by a production company in Ipswich, benefiting the owners to the effect of £1,000. Could your business or someone you know benefit from the opportunities on offer? Do any of the categories below apply to you or someone you know?
Register a location
Screen Suffolk are on the lookout for new Ipswich locations. We have lots requests for all sorts of locations; it’s not just manor houses and picturesque properties. From modern and sleek offices to industrial, gritty and run down locations, every day high street shops and street scenes. So no one should count themselves out. If you own or work at a location that you think might be of interest, get in touch! You can browse eisting locations on the website.
Production space is also invaluable, so if you have empty spaces, spare rooms or even regularly used rooms that could be booked for production space or areas of hard standing we would like to hear from you.
Register as a service of facilities supplier
Screen Suffolk list service and facilities suppliers on our website, from accommodation and catering to equipment rental and production services. This is publicly available, and allows film makers to see relevant businesses and companies in the region.
Register as cast or crew
Screen Suffolk encourage productions to crew up locally. We keep a database of cast and crew in the region, and when production companies have roles, we put forward everyone registered with a relevant skillset. The final decision falls to the production company, but Screen Suffolk will make sure you are considered.
Find out about training and career opportunities
Screen Suffolk are connected to several training providers. When we find out about opportunities, we want to pass them on to the people that care! Long term, we will source placements on set and make them available to young people in Ipswich who are looking to work in the screen industries.
