4 easy steps to filming in Rotterdam

  1. First read the Film Protocol of Rotterdam (pdf). The protocol provides a clear insight into the working methods of Rotterdam and indicates the filming category.
  2. Check whether any other events are booked, or cruise ships docked, on the desired date and location.
  3. Do you use trucks for your recordings? Then make sure that these have emission class 6 or higher. If this is not the case, you can request an exemption. Take application deadlines into account!
  4. Register your shoot in the Central Film Planning. You will receive a registration certificate once you’ve registered. Please note: Registration in the Central Film Planning will not automatically give permission for the shoot.

Check out our showreel for an impression of how the city has been used as a backdrop by various producers.
