Film Edinburgh is the City of Edinburgh Council's film office, providing film office services for Edinburgh, East Lothian and the Scottish Borders. We offer free advice to productions on the locations, crew and facilities that are available in this area. Our local knowledge will save you time in setting up your shoot. We know the locations that are interested in allowing filming and their location library together with the Edinburgh production guide of local crew and facilities will help you find what you're looking for.

Film Edinburgh acts as the first point of liaison for productions with the City of Edinburgh Council, East Lothian Council, Scottish Borders Council and Police Scotland (Edinburgh and Lothian & Borders divisions). We have the contacts you will need if your shoot requires parking, road closures, police personnel, street furniture removal etc.

Contact Film Edinburgh to discuss your project requirements.  

More information about arranging permission and access for filming and photography in areas of Council responsibility in Edinburgh, including parking dispensations, is available on the Council website.
