For Residents & Businesses

We don’t just support the film industry; we also support the businesses and communities the film crews are operating in. 

The Essex Film Office recognises the economic benefits of location filming and by attracting film and TV production activity into the county it helps stimulate investment in film related industries along with local communities and services.

However, we do understand that not everyone enjoys having a film crew on their doorstep and the noise and inconvenience can be worrying to some, particularly in you don’t know what is going on in your area. The Essex Film Office is here to support residents with filming in their area. Read some FAQ here.

If you cannot find the answer to your enquiry, or simply have a question contact

Supporting Crew & Training

We are also committed to supporting the industry professionals and crews who live and work in the region by identifying training opportunities for Essex residents looking to enter a career in film and production.

Our database of film makers and suppliers is continually growing. 

If you would like to be added to the database, please submit your details here providing a brief overview of you and/or your business. Register as crew here.
