New Forest as a filming location
Many will be surprised at the variety of filming possibilities and locations available in New Forest.
The district is famed for its untouched woodland and far-reaching heathland. Alongside this is settings of vast coastline, historic buildings, flowing rivers, picturesque roads, industrial sites, bygone villages, free-roaming animals and more.
In addition to the primary aim of encouraging spend on local goods and services, the Film:New Forest project seeks to deliver the following benefits:
- opportunities for owners of local premises to offer their facilities for filming locations
- a network of businesses within this sector to share best practice and opportunities
- engagement with local students to provide career opportunities and improve skills
- development of best practice to ensure that filming which takes place does not negatively impact the natural landscape
We partnered with Creative England to kickstart the Film:New Forest project.
