Qld's Dora film push 'a vanity project'

March 15, 2018

Queensland wants a special concession from the federal government to have a Dora movie filmed there.

Queensland's fledgling film industry risks being snuffed out in its infancy unless the federal government increases tax breaks to attract international film companies, the head of Screen Queensland says.

Tracey Vierra says they have been working to get the new Dora the Explorer live-action movie to film in Queensland, but it could fall through because there isn't enough of an incentive to film in Australia compared to other countries, including New Zealand.

The federal government has agreed to one-off arrangements for recent productions such as the Aquaman movie, but is refusing to budge on the Dora film, with a decision due by the end of the week.
