All projects for film and television must complete a Production Information Sheet. This form allows our staff to ensure that the appropriate parties are aware of your project and there are no conflicts with upcoming events or work.
Our team is able to support the location of additional filming sites and connect your team with local businesses.
We want your cast and crew to have a positive experience in our community and assist with a smooth production experience for you and our residents.
If your project will affect city streets, parking or other municipal assets, you will need to apply for a film permit before you can start production in St. Thomas. Apply for your permit at least 20 business days before you plan to begin. If your project involves a road closure or hazardous activities, a longer approval process may be necessary.
If you have a shorter filming timeline please contact our office to discuss your proposal and we'll do our best to accommodate your project.
The team at the St. Thomas Economic Development Corporation is available to support you throughout the application process and work through the filming checklist with you through a collaborative process.
Our checklist is central to the process and provides a sense of what to expect in St. Thomas. As we complete the worksheet together, it will support your planning process and become part of the Film Permit Application. It serves as the primary working document and refers back to the City's Film Policy.
While you are fliming in St. Thomas, we want to stay in touch! It's important for your team and ours to be up to date to keep the experience positive.
We ask that you promote the best health and safety practices and brief the cast and crew about local processes (Code of Conduct) and resources.
We encourage you to support local businesses during filming and offer our continued assistance to support smooth operations of City of St. Thomas resources and locations.
