Canal Road Film Centre


Offering dedicated pre-production offices and full production accommodation, workshop space as well as container and truck parking facilities. We offer both casual and permanent tenancies. Canal Road Film Centre is ideally located close to major transport routes, including the light rail which connects to the airport, and within easy reach of Sydney's CBD and surrounding suburbs.


The Canal Road Film Centre (CRFC) is an innovative concept initiated by a group of tenants of the former Public Works Depot located in Canal Road, Leichhardt.

This site has been home to specialist Film Industry related businesses for some 22 years and in 1998 a representative body of tenants entered into negotiations with the State Government leading to the formal handing over of the site and the signing of a long-term lease agreement in July 2001.

The CRFC vision is for an umbrella community where there is a shared recognition of the value and diversity of the small businesses contributing to and working in all areas of Film & Television.

We aim to maintain an environment that promotes harmonious and mutually rewarding relationships within our site, and the industry at large


Our centre offers a flexible package of dedicated production facilities ideally located within 10 minutes of Sydney’s CBD, 15 minutes from Fox Studios and 20 minutes from Sydney airport by road. As professionals from all areas of the industry, we provide a service tailored to your needs. Our facilities are under constant review and development.
