Filming can impact our community and the use of Council property, public amenities or traffic conditions for this reason permits are required.

Details on how to apply for a filming permit are set out in the Filming in Brimbank guidelines (DOCX 4.7MB)

Filming in facilities and on sports grounds will also require a booking and/or a bond.

If you're a student filming for coursework, you're exempt from permit fees but you may still need a film permit.

Filming permits are part of the Victorian Screen Code of Conduct and other requirements which apply under our Local Laws.
