Gold Coast Airport made its ‘big screen’ debut last month as a location for the international blockbuster Nim’s Island, currently in production on the Gold Coast.
The film, starring Hollywood heavyweight Jodie Foster, transformed the airport’s former International Terminal (T3) into Borneo Airport for the one day shoot.
Gold Coast Airport Chief Operating Officer Paul Donovan said, “With a cast and crew of more than 200 people, Nim’s Island is the first production of this magnitude to be filmed at the airport and is a sign of things to come as our facilities are improved. We are very excited to throw our support behind the local film industry, with many of the extras and crew involved in this production being locals.”
The film will open in the US on April 25, 2008.
