Welcome
 
to Gloucestershire On Screen, a website set up to examine the role Gloucestershire has played in the history of TV and film-making. Using "before and after" photographs and film stills of film & TV made in the county, Gloucestershire On Screen illustrates how alluring the county is to potential film directors and TV producers. With the inaugural Cheltenham Film Festival planned to take place in October 2010, this website is aiming to be at the forefront of a resurgance of interest in local film and telvision. So, if you are looking for movies filmed in Gloucester, Cheltenham, Stroud, Tewkesbury or anywhere else in the Cotswolds, this site aims to cater. Or perhaps you are part of the new breed of people partaking in "film tourism" - coming to the county to search for film locations!
 
Since Malcolm Mcdowell rode around the county on his motorbike in the 1960s classic, If..., Gloucestershire has become a mecca for film and TV companies throughout the world, being used as a prime filming location. The construction of Cheltenham Film Studios in the late 1990s, as well as the founding of several major council film departments, designed to cater for the needs of production companies, have helped to garner an interest in using Gloucestershire as a film location.  Today, the county boasts the Screenwriter's Festival, a plethora of celebrity residents and, perhaps most importantly, a beautiful backdrop suited to a variety of homegrown and foreign productions.
 
Gloucestershire On Screen is updated daily with new & exclusive photos and memories, so is always on the lookout for any snaps you may have of filming locations, whether present-day or within an historical context.
