On Site at Pioneer Film Studios


Facilities by ADF, the leading provider of premium serviced production facilities to the UK film and high-end television (HETV) industry, announced the opening of its new office in Glasgow, set in Pioneer Film Studios’ campus, Scotland’s newest and largest film studio.

This expansion will enable ADF to provide local support in the region and provide the Group with direct access to the range of productions being filmed at Pioneer.

ADF opened the new office in response to the recent growth in the film and HETV market in Scotland which has witnessed extensive studio space expansion and inward investment as global productions increasingly choose the country’s natural landscape and strong creative sector. As such, the new base will not only strengthen the Group’s regional presence alongside global production companies, with the support of Pioneer Films Studio, ADF will also be able to capitalise on the growing activity in the one of the largest emerging markets within the UK Film and TV industry.
