About us

Screen NSW is part of Create NSW - the NSW Government’s new arts and cultural driver, which brings together arts, screen and culture functions in a new integrated entity.

The agency forms part of the Arts, Sport and Tourism Group within the Department of Enterprise, Investment and Trade, and is responsible for furthering Government’s vision for NSW to be known for its bold and exciting arts and culture that engages the community and reflects the state’s rich diversity.

Create NSW invests in the success and future of arts, screen and culture in NSW through infrastructure and funding programs. For information on screen funding and incentives or filming in NSW, please visit the Screen NSW website.

We are committed to growing, empowering and strengthening the arts, screen and culture sectors in NSW, to embed arts in the everyday and deliver new, innovative and exciting arts and cultural services and experiences for the people of NSW.

Create NSW works to achieve the NSW Government’s strategic objectives to develop and sustain the arts, culture and screen sectors, which are built upon the ambitions of excellence, access and strength, and which reflect and support the diverse communities across NSW.
