Welcome to the Screen Wellington Film Permitting App
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.
You also need Public Liability insurance coverage, a Health & Safety Policy and for each location a Risk Register and QR code poster. All documents must consider the Covid-19 Health & Safety Standards for Screen Productions and Covid-19 Alert levels.
In order to apply for a filming permit all health and safety documents and public liability insurance must be completed and attached, including:
- Risk Register (covering off ScreenSafe Covid 19 alert levels)
- Health and Safety Policy (if a student this will come from your school or university)
- Covid 19 QR code poster specific to your production
