About Film Edinburgh

"You must be the most useful Film Office I have ever dealt with!"
Alan Riches, Thames TV

Film Edinburgh is the City of Edinburgh Council's film office, providing film office services not only for Edinburgh but also East Lothian and Scottish Borders. We offer free advice to productions on the locations, crew and facilities that are available in this area. Our local knowledge will save you time in setting up your shoot. We know the locations that are interested in allowing filming and our location library together with the Edinburgh production guide of local crew and facilities will help you find what you're looking for.

Established in 1990 as the first film office in Scotland, we have extensive experience of facilitating productions, in-depth local knowledge, a vast range of locations and excellent relationships in and around the Edinburgh city region which together make Film Edinburgh a one-stop-shop for filming and production needs in the Edinburgh city region.

Film Edinburgh acts as the first point of liaison for productions with the City of Edinburgh Council, East Lothian Council, Scottish Borders Council and Police Scotland (Edinburgh and Lothian & Borders divisions). We have the contacts you will need if your shoot requires parking, road closures, police personnel, street furniture removal etc.
