Contact Film Office

Following UK Government advice that the Film and TV industry can return to work, Brent Council Film Office is now processing film applications.

Please carefully assess each location you propose, as all filming must comply with social distancing guidelines. To ensure that we can give you the best possible advice regarding your shoot, and to seek approval from relevant council departments, we would advise you to call us 020 8937 4817 or email us before submitting an application.

Production Companies are expected to follow relevant guidelines about safe working practices (British Film CommissionPACT and APA) and we have additional terms and conditions for filming in public spaces that we will require production companies to follow.

All applications will need to attach a risk assessment clearly addressing Covid-19 mitigation measures.

Please note that all applications are taking longer to process than usual, including longer lead-in times for parking and highways requests and additional admin/officer time fees may apply due to increased time spent on applications due to Covid-19.
