Welcome to Wellington FilmApp

Before applying for a permit

To apply to film in Wellington, you will need to register both yourself and the film production in FilmApp. Each time you login you can select an existing production, or create a new application.

All productions must first be registered with ScreenSafe. Film permits will only be issued in the Wellington Region for productions that are registered with ScreenSafe.

You also need proof of Public Liability insurance, plus a Health & Safety Policy and Risk Assessment for each location. All documents must consider the Covid-19 Health & Safety Standards for Screen Productions.

Visit ScreenSafe for templates and more information on safety guidelines and protocols.
