The Liverpool City Region Production Fund has been created which will result in more filming taking place across Halton, Knowsley, Liverpool, Sefton, St Helens and Wirral.

The Fund is aimed at small and large projects ranging from feature films and TV dramas, right through to scripted comedies and animations.

Worth £2million, local, national and international production companies can bid for a maximum investment of £500,000 per proposal.

  • Projects must use the Liverpool City Region as a location (for all or part of the project).
  • There must be a focus on employing local people.
  • They're encouraged to use local businesses, such as hotels where the cast and crew will stay during their time here.
