    Creative Economy: Film
    Film, Television and Photo Shoots Permitting Process

    The Department of Arts, Culture and Tourism (DACT) coordinates the permitting process for motion picture, television, and still photographic projects in the City of New Haven. Interested parties should contact the Office with any plans for filming within the city.

    DACT works to coordinate a smooth production by serving as an interface between production companies and various city departments and agencies, and minimize the impact of these activities on our residents and businesses.

    Please refer to the Guide to Filming in New Haven which contains a film application form and details the parameters in which filming is allowed. It also includes information regarding the necessary approvals and services of various city departments.

    The New Haven Film Application is free and is designed to provide preliminary information necessary to begin the process and should be completed and submitted to DACT for review. In addition to the application, we require a certificate of liability insurance naming the City of New Haven as additional insured for a minimum amount of $1,000,000.

    DACT works very closely with city residents and area business, as well as other government agencies and offices to facilitate filmakers needs when appropriate. Other city agencies or departments may require fees, deposits, or bonds, to cover the costs of personnel, services, permits or any needed remediation, upon the conclusion of the activity.

    Primary point of contact is Kim Futrell, Department of Arts, Culture and Tourism, City of New Haven, 165 Church Street, New Haven, CT 06510; Phone: (203) 946-7172; Fax: (203) 946-7808; E-Mail: kfutrell@newhavenct.net.
