Bristol Film Office is a Bristol City Council service dedicated to all productions planning to film in the city.
We can assist at all stages of production, from initial location and crewing advice to recces and logistical support.
Our main services are:
- Filming permission – we issue permits for filming on Bristol City Council managed property and land.
- Bristol locations – we assist commercial productions with sourcing locations and support with logistical arrangements at Council-managed locations. We also manage a Locations Database which enables productions to search for locations and properties to register as potential filming locations.
- Providing advice – we can advise on any aspects of filming in the city, including local crew and production facilities, office and build space and more.
- Inward investment – we calculate the value of production activity to Bristol’s economy.
We are dedicated to making your film, television or commercial photography shoot run as smoothly as possible when on location in Bristol.
We work to advocate filming activity and build a film-friendly approach across Bristol.
We also manage activity for Bristol UNESCO City of Film.
