Welcome to the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea Film Office

The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, along with several other boroughs in London uses a web based film application process called “FilmApp”.

The system asks you to register your name and e mail address. The next time you log on, it remembers who you are and allows you to auto-fill the production details, (the same details you entered the last time you used FilmApp). If you are working on a new production, you enter the new production details.

The idea is to set up the various locations you need one by one until you have entered your full day’s schedule. If you are intending to film driving shots from a moving vehicle you can simply enter the route you intend to take. There is a fast track process for small crews using hand held or tripod mounted cameras wanting GVs in many locations.

Once you have agreed to the terms and conditions, and submitted your application, you will receive an acknowledgement by e mail. If the application is successful, your licence will follow. There may be a fee to pay if you are using a park or housing estate or if you want to film on private land.

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 e-mail on info@filmapp.org
