About Croydon Film Office

Croydon Film Office provides 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 licensed by us. Our work is guided by the principles of the London Filming Partnership.

Croydon is a thriving, vibrant borough in the heart of a great world city. We make sure filmmakers respect the people who live and work here. We also negotiate to ensure the community benefits fully from the advantages of filming here.

Our work includes arranging Q&A sessions where residents meet filmmakers; direct donations to community groups and causes; and securing training, work placements and jobs for local people. We collect location fees for the council, which can be spent on further community benefits.

We liaise across council departments such as Highways, Parking, Housing and Leisure. We work with the Metropolitan Police Film Unit, resident associations and trader associations to ensure all filming is managed safely and smoothly.
