    I was looking for some advice about filming in Berlin. We want to film on some streets with 3 crew members, no tripod or lighting. Who are the best people to contact regarding getting this permission?

    Hi Charlotte,
    In general, applications for special shooting permits should be turned in as early as possible, but are due at least 14 days prior to when they are to take effect. Once applications have been received by the VLB, a minimum of four workdays is required for processing. The BBFC urges you to fill out applications early and in a professional manner to ensure that the shooting schedule run smoothly.
    Administrative fees are calculated according to the actual complexity of the permit. Fees concerning traffic regulations are set by the relevant authority according to ordnance and range in cost from 10.20 €€ to 767.00 € €. You ca apply here:
