The birthplace of RMS Titanic, now known as Titanic Quarter, a 185 acres of reclaimed Harland & Wolff docklands, offers a competitive and unique environment as a potential film location. Film and television productions, some of which are listed below, have been filmed at Titanic Quarter and in the historic buildings on the site including the former Harland & Wolff HQ building and Drawing Offices. These magnificent buildings offer exceptional bespoke filming surroundings. Titanic Quarter is also at an advantage as it is located within close proximity to Belfast City Centre and all major transport links including Belfast City Airport, which is only a 5 minute drive.
Andrew Reid, Head of Production at Northern Northern Ireland Film & Television Commission says ''As a location the Titanic Quarter offers a unique and exciting opportunity for the media sector to utilise the rich heritage of the former shipbuilding land and structures associated with the construction of the White Star liners RMS Titanic and Olympic ''.
