Welcome to Screen Auckland FilmApp

FilmApp is a simple film permit application platform that helps streamline the application process for the filmmaker and Screen Auckland.  

To apply to film in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland, you will need to register in FilmApp. 

If you know where you’d like to film and have all your supporting documentation ready, you can get started with three easy steps: 

  1. Register yourself with FilmApp. Each time you login you can select an existing production or create a new application. FilmApp conveniently allows you to save draft applications to complete later. 

  2. Register with ScreenSafe. Film permits will only be issued in Tāmaki Makaurau for productions that are registered with ScreenSafe. 

  3. Click on ‘Apply for a permit’ and work through the tabs.  

Applications must be lodged with complete details by 8.00am five full business days prior to the shoot date, contingency date or first date of bump in / parking reservation – whichever occurs first. 
For applications involving complex logistics or locations, central Auckland city locations or traffic management a longer lead time may apply. Please contact Screen Auckland or review the Film Application Checklist for guidance. 

Changes requested within application timeframes may not always be achievable. It is important that feasibility discussions are carried out prior to lodging your application to avoid disappointment.
