Film Friendly Charter and Permissions

001 NGI Gateway Northumberland 1 min

All seven local authority partners under Destination North East England have signed a Filming Friendly Charter. It is a commitment to working in partnership with regional screen development agency North East Screen to make the North East a filming friendly region.

This has ensured there is there’s a single point of contact at each North East local authority and combined authority to coordinate each department impacted by filming, to make it easier to use of council property, and to work with North East Screen on publicity, helping to put a spot light on our region.

There are lots of ways businesses can benefit from screen tourism and this charter will help build on our growing reputation as a location for film and TV productions.

Why film in the North East?

Filming opportunities are so important due to the everlasting impact that filming locations have on tourism and encouraging visitors to explore new destinations after seeing them on the screen. “Our region couldn’t be more suited to the screen, with outstanding scenery to offer an incredible backdrop for any film or series and historical buildings that can be adapted for all genres.
