Register your production with the New Hampshire Film & Television Office

Did you know that there are no general filming permits in New Hampshire? The New Hampshire Film & Television Office has taken the hassle out of permitting, and the only paperwork we need is if you are planning to shoot on state property (e.g. state parks, historic sites, government buildings)--and even that is a snap. All you need to do is register your production with the New Hampshire Film & Television Office through our easy-to-use online form and that gets the process started.

The New Hampshire Film & Television Office encourages all productions to register with the film office prior to their project getting underway in the Granite State. Providing the New Hampshire Film & Television office with your project's information and needs will allow us to better serve you and help your production run smoothly.

What are the benefits to registering your production?

- You will receive a filming memo from the New Hampshire Film & Television Office - an official letter stating that your production has contacted and registered with the film office and that we are ready to assist you as you prepare for your shoot. Feel free to make copies of the memo and include with your location agreements.

- You will have access to a state government agency that will provide personal customer service to your production - from first conversation to production wrap - a liaison linking you into a network of other state departments, associations, and property owners.

- Your information will only need to be submitted once. Should you later require to film on state property, there are no additional applications to file. Your production registration covers this step, saving you time--and money..

Best of all, the application to film on state property doesn’t cost you a thing! To register your upcoming production with the New Hampshire Film & Television Office, and for more information on insurance requirements, click here.
