Welcome to FilmApp for the Islington Film Office
Following government advice about returning to work, FilmFixer will be accepting applications to film in Islington.
Islington residents, please visit www.islingtonfilmoffice.co.uk for information about filming in your neighbourhood.
Production companies are expected to follow relevant guidelines about safe working practices (British Film Commission, PACT and APA). We have additional terms and conditions that we will require production companies to follow. Please see the Islington Additional T&Cs - Covid 19 document in the useful documents section, or by clicking here.
Please carefully assess each location you propose. If you do not think it is possible to comply with social distancing regulations, then do not apply. If you are not sure, please call to discuss before making an application. Applications may be refused if we feel the production has selected an unsuitable location and/or the social distancing plans are unrealistic.
Filmmakers - you are here. This is the FilmApp site for Islington Film Office - we are here to assist you. If you are looking for a location, please call on 0207 620 0391.
If you know where you'd like to film, please make your application here. Islington, along with most other London boroughs, uses a web-based film application process called FilmApp, designed to help both the film maker and the film officer.
The system asks you to register yourself. Next time, it remembers who you are and allows you to auto-complete the production details - the same details you entered the last time you used FilmApp. If you are working on a new production, please enter the new production details.
Set up the various locations you need one by one until you have entered all the locations. There is a fast track for small crews wanting GVs in many locations. And if you are intending to film driving shots from a moving vehicle, you can simply enter the route you intend to take.
Once you have agreed to the terms and conditions, and submitted your application, you will receive an acknowledgement by email. If the application is successful, an invoice will follow for the administration cost of processing your application (please see our advertised fees and charges on the right hand side). There may be additional fees to pay if you are using a park or housing estate or other private land. To pay the fee, you will be able to use a WorldPay link for payments by card, alternatively there are bank details on the invoice itself. We require payment prior to filming or completion of any additional works such as parking suspensions.
FilmApp is being revised all the time, if you have any difficulty or if you have a suggestion about how we might improve the system, please email us on email@example.com
