Film City Glasgow is a unique project developed and spearheaded by Sigma Films.
After a three phase, £3.5 million redevelopment and occupation of the beautiful, beaux arts Govan Town Hall, Film City Glasgow has firmly established itself as the heart and soul of Scotland’s film and television industry.
The facility comprises of over 12,000 sq ft of production office space, a 5,000 sq ft studio/build space, workshop areas, rehearsal/meeting rooms, café, and 10,000 sq ft of creative business offices, now home to over 25 permanent tenants from the screen and wider creative industries.
Current tenants include those from such disciplines as film production, animation, casting, design, and music, and a broad portfolio of high profile TV companies, including Keo North (Welcome to Lagos, River Cottage), Finestripe Productions (Shrink Rap, The Week We Went to War), Crocodile Media (Dispatches, Watching the Dead), and Objective Productions (Peep Show, Derren Brown).
Post production facilities within the premises are managed by leading Scottish companies Serious Facilities (picture post) and Savalas (sound post), and include fully equipped high-def edit and grading suites, a foley studio, project sound suites, and Scotland’s first Dolby Premier Studio.
Film City Glasgow has become the de facto production base for feature film work in Scotland, including Sigma Films Red Road and Perfect Sense, Black Camel Productions Legacy, Ecosse Films Decoy Bride, and Peter Mullan’s Neds. TV production work has included IWC Media for Channel 4 Iron Chef, Red Productions Single Father, Silver River One Night in Emergency, and the BBC with prime time comedies Mrs Brown’s Boys, Old Guys, and Life of Riley.
100% owned and run by Film City Glasgow Ltd, it offers low cost, flexible short term space hire, adaptable to every project and budget, and for those interested in permanent occupation, provides a fully serviced office solution, in a dynamic and synergetic environment for creative/media cross-fertilisation.
