Lambeth Film Office provides a one-stop service for managing filming and photography on behalf of the council. All professional filming and photography on council land or public roads is licensed by us. Our work is guided by the principles of the London Filming Partnership.
Lambeth is a thriving, vibrant borough in the heart of a great world city. We make sure film makers respect the people who live and work here. We also negotiate to ensure the community benefits fully from the advantages of filming here.
Our work includes arranging Q&A sessions where residents meet filmmakers; direct donations to community groups and causes; and securing training, work placements and jobs for local people. We collect location fees for the council, which can be spent on further community benefits.
We liaise across council departments such as Highways, Parking, Housing and Leisure. We work with the Metropolitan Police Film Unit, resident associations and trader associations to ensure all filming is managed safely and smoothly.
FilmFixer was chosen to manage Lambeth Council's film office in 2013. We are committed to meeting the council’s high standards for protecting the interests of local residents and businesses. Using our experience and expertise, we effectively promote and manage filming in our client boroughs for the benefit of the council and the community.
"The Lambeth Film Office is Lambeth showing innovation and really using our assets in creative ways to generate revenue to support services to our residents at a time when our funding has been cut by 50 per cent. The film service has proved to be a very well-managed service that has helped attract major production studios and brands to Lambeth for filming. They have coordinated high profile shoots on our behalf including Apple's iWatch ad, Marvel's film Kingsman: The Secret Service and 24: Live Another Day. In addition to also helping us host Naomi Campbell and Vogue magazine. The Lambeth Film Office supports and funds youth training schemes and job opportunities which are also a welcome boost for the local community."
