Welcome to Bromley Film Office
Managed by FilmFixer
On 12th May 2020, the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport confirmed that filming can commence as long as it can adhere to social distancing guidance. The government has also stated that people can start returning to work, if they cannot work from home. In light of this information and as the majority of filming cannot take place within people’s home, Bromley Film Office are now accepting small scale street filming applications and continue to review the guidance before permitting larger scale filming. We have not been accepting applications since the lockdown began on the 23rd March 2020 in line with government protocols.
Production companies are expected to follow relevant guidelines about safe working practices (guidance supplied by the British Film Commission, PACT and APA). We have additional terms and conditions that we will require production companies to follow. A copy of those T&Cs can be found here. All productions will need to supply risk assessments and method statements outlining how they will be adhering to social distancing measures.
Bromley Film Office will be reviewing each application on a case by case basis taking into consideration the location and the feasibility of the social distancing plans. Applications may be refused if we feel the production has selected an unsuitable location and/or the social distancing plans are unrealistic.

If you are a filmmaker and have any questions in regards to filming taking place on the street, please do not hesitate to call us on 0207 620 0391.
Bromley is the largest borough in Greater London by area and sits at the most South-Eastern point of the capital. Thanks to its Metropolitan Green Belt status, the borough offers some of the most impressive green spaces and rural backdrops in the city. Beckenham, Orpington, Chislehurst and Penge are just some of the well-known areas within Bromley, all with their unique character and array of filming locations.
Crystal Palace Park has provided a backdrop for all manner of productions – from commercials for 02, Nike and Superdry to high profile TV shows like Netflix’s upcoming sci-fi drama The Nevers. Elsewhere in the borough, we’ve facilitated numerous globally-renowned productions such as Pennyworth, Killing Eve and Giri/Haji.
As Bromley Film Office, we provide a one-stop service for managing filming and photography on behalf of the council. All professional filming and photography on council land or public roads is licenced by us and our work is guided by the principles of the London Filming Partnership.
We collect location fees for the council. We work closely with council departments such as Highways, Parking, Regeneration, Leisure, the Metropolitan Police Film Unit and resident, community and trader associations to ensure all filming is managed legally, safely and smoothly.
One of our principal aims at the Bromley Film Office is to make sure filmmakers respect the people who live and work in the community and we will negotiate to ensure that the community benefits fully from the advantages of filming in their borough.
