The Film Commission Neckar-Alb wants to make the region known as a film and television location. In cooperation with the location agency Tübingen-Reutlingen-Zollernalb GmbH, the Wirtschaftsförderung Region Stuttgart GmbH and the MFG Medien- und Filmgesellschaft Baden-Württemberg mbH, the Film Commission supports producers in their search for locations.

The Film Commission Region Neckar-Alb, based in Reutlingen and Stuttgart, is an advisory centre for all aspects of film production in the districts of Tübingen, Reutlingen and Zollernalb. Its aim is to make film-makers aware of the attractiveness of the Neckar-Alb region. The Film Commission's services include the placement of film locations and filmmakers, individual support in obtaining filming permits, cooperation with authorities and clarification of legal and organisational issues. Local production companies and filmmakers are offered the opportunity to be included in the database, as are interesting, unusual and private locations.

Ulla Matzen is the new director of the Film Commission Neckar-Alb. She represents Laura Müller until her return in 2021. The media engineer has been working as a project manager for the Film Commission Region Stuttgart since 2007 and, building on this, would like to further develop the Neckar-Alb region as an attractive landscape with great potential for film and television. "I am very pleased to be allowed to use me now also for the region Neckar Alb as a great film landscape with singular and unused film locations. To network the filmmakers more strongly with each other and to further advance the expansion of the regional databases supports us in showing the strengths of the location", says Matzen about the new task.
