European Film Commissions Network publishes guide to filming Europe in Safety

As film and TV production in Europe slowly resumes countries and film institutions are providing technical and organizational measures in order to help productions restart in safety during the global emergency. The European Film Commissions Network (EUFCN) are collecting the guidelines to make them available to all professionals shooting in Europe over coming months.

Truls Konty, EUFCN President says “in these difficult times, the EUFCN wants to do what we can to help the film industry to have an overview of where and when it is possible to start shooting again. The economies in most of the European countries are badly suffering. The fact that the film industry involves many other industries while shooting can help to kick start the economy again. We, as film commissioners, will do what we can to be there and help to guide the producers when they are ready to shoot abroad again”.

Associations or filming bodies in the Czech Republic, Spain, Norway, Finland and Germany currently have guidelines published. As productions begin again making sure that cast and crew are safe and film shoots do not spread the virus are a top priority. The assorted guidelines cover cast and crew testing to protective equipment and in-site organisation. The extensive protocols vary between countries and the EUFCN page will be constantly updated as these guidelines change or evolve. Click here to view the full list of guidelines.
