Film offices in B.C. are beginning to reopen with fresh COVID-19 protocols in place. Productions seeking film permits should contact the appropriate permitting authority before proceeding with the application process as some timelines or protocols may have shifted during this ramp-up period.
For filming in B.C.’s regions, start by contacting the knowledgeable staff at the regional film commission that oversees the area. Regional film commissions know their territories, can help navigate communication pathways, and provide valuable insight into which communities are ready to go and those that are more sensitive to incoming productions during this time.
