'How to Please a Woman' was mainly filmed in Fremantle with Leighton Beach featuring in beach sequences. The film premiered to a sold-out season at Perth Festival as part of Lotterywest Films at The University of Western Australia's Somerville Auditorium.

The State Government, through Screenwest, provided $750,000 towards production via its coveted West Coast Visions funding program. The film delivered more than $3.7 million to the WA economy and created 272 jobs for Western Australians.

Ahead of its cinema release, the film has screened at Perth Festival, WA Made Film Festival in Perth, Gold Coast Film Festival and CinefestOZ Albany.

The screen and creative industries are one of the focus areas of development, as part of the State's economic diversification strategy Diversify WA.
