From Red Dirt to Red Carpets: The Rise of Northern Territory’s Screen Sector

In the Northern Territory, our commitment to screen production is paramount. With an industry that’s rapidly growing, we’re proud to nurture and support our local talent and facilitate exciting screen projects. Screen Territory is dedicated to championing, fostering, and financing our sector, empowering screen practitioners to create compelling content that resonates with audiences both locally and globally.

In recent years, the Northern Territory has become a hotbed of creativity and a major destination for production, following the introduction of the Production Attraction Incentive Program. Several large scale productions have filmed in the Northern Territory recently, including Netflix’s new flagship series “Desert King” and Amazon’s top rating show “Lost Flowers of Alice Hart”. Also recently wrapped in the NT is Stan’s “Thou Shalt Not Steal” an exciting new series by Territorian director Dylan River and produced by award winning production company Ludo. Production momentum continues with the announcement of StudioCanal feature film “Kangaroo” directed by Kate Woods which set to unfold against the backdrop of our stunning Central Australia landscapes. Additionally, the upcoming Amazon series “Top End Bub” executive produced and starring the NT’s Miranda Tapsell promises to further showcase the richness of Northern Territory in the Top End as it kicks off production in May

This Northern Territory Production Attraction Incentive Program is open to all Australian and international producers, production companies and studios with screen projects that are spending a minimum of AU$2 million on qualifying Northern Territory Production Expenditure in the Northern Territory and have evidence of genuine marketplace interest for commercial release or distribution.
