Location Filming Guidelines
The GFC has also issued guidelines to ensure that location filming in Gauteng is efficiently coordinated and to promote responsible location filming practices.
Public Film Permits :
The GFC does not issue permits, nor does the GFC have a Film Permit Unit. Permits are issued by the relevant city, provincial or national departments, agencies and authorities. Some government departments and agencies have asked for permit applications to be channelled through the GFC.
This helps us keep better track of what is happening in the province and assist in identifying and addressing bottlenecks as they arise. The GFC will point you towards the relevant department or agency when you require a film permit and will facilitate the submission of your application on your behalf at no cost.
For use of private locations permission must always be sourced from the owners or managing agents directly.
