To strengthen the Freiburg Region as a media business centre, in late 2002 the Location Office Region Freiburg was set up. The operators of the regional advisory institution for companies in the film industry and filmmakers from all branches are the City of Freiburg via its subsidiary Freiburg Wirtschaft, Touristik und Messe GmbH Co.KG (FWTM) and the Medien- und Filmgesellschaft Baden Württemberg (MFG).
The Location Office Region Freiburg
- Assists companies such as local and foreign film and TV producers searching for filming locations
- Establishes contacts with filmmakers in the creative and technical sector as well as providers of production and post-production services
- Identifies the correct local people to speak to concerning filming permission in the cities and local authorities in the region
- Supports the MFG in establishing a database at www.location-bw.de where potential filming sites are presented in both words and pictures, so that people interested worldwide can obtain information conveniently and easily find their way to the Freiburg region.
