Now formally named as Perth Film Studios, the new facility will be operated by Perth-based company Home Fire. The agreement covers a pre-operational period and the first 10 years of operation, with the option available to the State to renew for a further three 10-year periods.

The State Government has already committed $233.5 million to the construction and delivery of Perth Film Studios on a 16-hectare site on Marshall Road, near the new Malaga METRONET station. The facility will be open for productions from early 2026.

Additional funding of $57 million has been approved to underpin the operations and facilities management of Perth Film Studios over the initial term and is repayable to the State from business operations. The new facility is expected to generate a variety of direct and indirect jobs and significant economic return for the State over the long term.

The facility is a crucial part of the State Government’s longer term Screen Industry Strategy to develop and grow the local production industry over the next 10 years, by establishing Western Australia as a major international and national film and television production destination.

The Arts and Culture Trust will be the owner of Perth Film Studios on behalf of the State Government and, upon completion of the build, it will be responsible for overseeing the implementation of the operations agreement with Home Fire.

The agreement finalises a rigorous 3-year, staged process under the State Government’s Market-led Proposals policy to diversify the State’s economy and develop a globally competitive screen industry in Western Australia.
