Brandenburg - Filming in forests
Film shoots in forests have to be coordinated with the responsible forestry department or the respective proprietor in advance. Large parts of the forests in Berlin and Brandenburg are owned by the corresponding State.
In Brandenburg the Landesbetrieb Forst Brandenburg is pleased to give advice about set locations and film shoots.
Special permits are issued by the Landesbetrieb Forst Brandenburg with whom you should discuss in detail about the shooting process.
For film shoots of rare and endangered animal species, a special permit must be obtained from the Department for the Protection of Species, Section Ö1, Division Nature Preservation of the State Environmental Agency of Brandenburg (Artenschutzbehörde, Referat Ö1, Abteilung Naturschutz des Landesumweltamtes Brandenburg).
