Berlin Brandenburg Film Commission

  • Shooting Permits

    The special dispensations needed, insofar as they are allowed by road-traffic laws, will depend on the size of the shoot and its impact on traffic flows. The BBFC supports film crews during this application process and works closely with policymakers and government agencies.

  • Application Forms

    The BBFC supplies official application forms free of charge. This enables a standardisation of application documents, thus facilitating the efficient processing of applications by the appropriate agencies. In these forms, applicants will find the correct fax numbers or mailing addresses for the appropriate administrative departments.

  • Location Database

    From A for apothecary to Z for zoo, our film-location database holds more than 1,300 locations in Berlin and Brandenburg with around 25,000 stored images – and this number is steadily increasing. Each entry includes an address, a brief description, and contact information. 

  • Address Database

    The address database is the electronic industry-business directory for the media sector in Berlin and Brandenburg. Whether you need producers, equipment, locations or staff, or simply want information and the right contact for obtaining film permits in the region, you’ll find it here.

  • Production Index

    Who’s shooting what, where, and when? The answer to these questions can be found in the BBFC’s Production Index. Known productions in Berlin-Brandenburg are sorted by genre (from animated film to TV show) and production date (from planning to final wrap).

  • Coaching
