Welcome to the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea Film Office

This guidance follows the Government’s local restriction tier system that is in place from Sunday 20 December, with London in Tier 4.

Filming and Photography

In line with current guidance on film and TV production, the Council is accepting and reviewing filming and photography applications submitted during this period on a case-by-case basis, taking into account the impact the activity could have on the proposed location and the local community. 

Productions will need to demonstrate a clear plan to reduce the risk of Covid-19 transmission, in line with current Government advice, including:

  • Assurances on how social distancing will be maintained for cast and crew, and in managing the public
  • Assurances on health and hygiene measures that will be implemented during the proposed film or photographic shoot event, to prevent the spread of Covid-19
  • Crew completing the free Screen Skills Coronavirus basic awareness on production.

Should Government advice change and not support film and TV production, bookings may need to be cancelled or postponed. The Film office will endeavour to provide production companies with as much notice of cancellation as possible.

Please read the latest Government guidance for further details.
