Berlin Brandenburg Film Commission


Before the flap falls - free service for filming in Berlin-Brandenburg

We, the Berlin Brandenburg Film Commission BBFC are a division of Medienboard Berlin Brandenburg GmbH.
We are service providers for national and international filmmakers and help to arrange filming permits and locations as well as contacts to the regional film industry.
Our service is available to all creative people from film, TV, advertising and video production.


Service pages www.bbfc.de:

Since February 2000 we have been  offering  our free address and motif database  at www.bbfc.de. Here you will find the right contact person for everything that is required for filmmaking. Whether you are looking for equipment, locations or personnel or you just need information and the right contact person for filming permit procedures in the region - you will find it here.


Our goal:

to make the Berlin-Brandenburg region film-friendly.
Our task is, among other things, to mediate in critical situations between filmmakers, authorities and motivators. We work in a dense network of politics, authorities, industry and service providers.
Last but not least, through our series of seminars "Before filming" we try to recognize, verbalize, discuss and solve problems in the spirit of the film-friendly city in a constant dialogue between the worlds.
