Film Production & Media
Worcester understands how important the creative industries are to the revitalization of cities. That is why we actively support the creation of new media and film in Worcester - the creative city! The Cultural Development Office is happy to provide you with assistance in the following areas:
- Site location identification - we offer red carpet tours to production staff, assisting you in identifying unique locations whether you are seeking edgy urban, lakeside views, historic neighborhoods or pastoral rural. Additionally we have more than ten colleges and universities which offer unique settings. Worcester has it all!

- Pre- and post-production referrals for technical support and personnel.
