Focus is on Glasgow as top film location

07 April 2017

The Glasgow Film Office (GFO) offers a free service to all productions wanting to film in the city. Jennifer Reynolds, Film Commissioner, explains why Glasgow is a popular location for filmmakers and outlines some of the challenges her office faces in supporting the industry.

Glasgow has shown incredible versatility in its ability to double as a location. Philadelphia in WWZ, San Francisco in Cloud Atlas, London in Fast and Furious 6 and, more recently, Glasgow doubled as Stockholm in the soon to be released The Wife, starring Glenn Close, Jonathan Pryce and Christian Slater. TV dramas such as Outlander have also found suitable Glasgow locations to double as both 1940s London and mid-20th century Boston, Massachusetts.
