All requests to film on Sydney Opera House’s site must gain prior approval from Sydney Opera House.
Please note: all applications for filming must be submitted a minimum of two weeks before the preferred filming date.
Sydney Opera House is one of the busiest performing arts centres in the world. With so much onsite activity we must comply with strict site safety and conservation management plans to protect all our staff and visitors.
Sydney Opera House abides by the film friendly principle and will work to facilitate on-site filming requests where it can, provided these requests do not interfere with our sponsorship agreements, commercial revenues or day to day operations.
Sydney Opera House receives partial funding for building maintenance from the State Government of NSW, but is otherwise responsible for driving close to 80% of its own commercial revenues. It is our responsibility therefore to preserve the integrity of the site and control the use of the Sydney Opera House brand and image.
