Hamburg loves film and Hamburg loves filmmakers. Which is why we would like to make staying in Hamburg as pleasant as possible for film crews. The “Hamburg Loves Film” initiative is a joint effort by the Film Commission of Filmförderung Hamburg Schleswig-Holstein and Hamburg Tourismus GmbH for the strengthening of Hamburg as a film friendly city.
The initiative began in May 2014 with an association of especially film-friendly hotels and guesthouses, who meet the service demands of national and international film productions and are generally open-minded towards film shoots in their houses.
On the occasion of the cinema release of A Most Wanted Man, the Film Commission and Hamburg Tourismus hosted a video bus tour to Hamburg’s most important shooting locations. Hamburg Tourismus also provides a digital version of the tour on its own website.
Hamburg Loves Film is already working on more cinematic tourist attractions.
Hamburg Tourismus has created a free Hamburg app, which could also be of interest to the film industry.
