Welcome to Kingston Film Office

Managed by FilmFixer

Kingston is one of the most picturesque boroughs in London thanks to its rich history and riverside setting. It provides rural charm and peaceful suburban backdrops, all well within the M25.

Thanks to its beautiful aesthetic, Kingston often proves a particularly popular borough for widely distributed commercials such as the Christmas campaigns for both Waitrose and Lidl. We’ve also facilitated shoots in the borough for TV productions like MotherFatherSon, The Capture, and Silent Witness.

As Kingston Film Office, we provide a one-stop service for managing filming and photography on behalf of the council. All professional filming and photography on council land or public roads is licenced by us and our work is guided by the principles of the London Filming Partnership.

We collect location fees for the council. We work closely with council departments such as Highways, Parking, Housing and Leisure, the Metropolitan Police Film Unit and resident, community and trader associations to ensure all filming is managed legally, safely and smoothly.

One of our principal aims at the Kingston Film Office is to make sure filmmakers respect the people who live and work in the community and we will negotiate to ensure that the community benefits fully from the advantages of filming in their borough.
