Welcome to Croydon Film Office

Managed by FilmFixer

The borough of Croydon is set to be the London Borough of Culture 2023. It is also home to one of the largest commercial districts outside of Central London. Its bustling central streets are uniquely serviced by the Tramlink light railway system and its alleyways and markets provide excellent opportunities for street-filming.

Recent filming successes in the borough have included Channel 4’s Adult Material, adverts for O2, H&M, Adidas and Lucozade.

As Croydon Film Office, we provide a one-stop service for managing filming and photography on behalf of the council.  All professional filming and photography on council land or public roads is licenced by us and our work is guided by the principles of the London Filming Partnership.

We collect location fees for the council. We work closely with council departments such as Highways, Parking, Housing and Leisure, the Metropolitan Police Film Unit and resident, community and trader associations to ensure all filming is managed legally, safely and smoothly.

One of our principal aims at the Croydon Film Office is to make sure filmmakers respect the people who live and work in the community and we will negotiate to ensure that the community benefits fully from the advantages of filming in their borough.
