Welcome to Barnet Film Office

Managed by FilmFixer

Barnet is a hilly, suburban borough in North London where leafy streets and green spaces are never far away. The borough boasts the second highest tree population in London and has a 200-strong catalogue of parks, nature reserves and open spaces. Unique locations such as the Finchley Mortuary and Finchley Lido give the borough an extra draw beyond its green credentials.

A number of high profile productions have made the most of what Barnet has to offer, including EastEnders and Stath Lets Flats on BBC, Temple on Sky One and Netflix’s incredibly popular Top Boy.

As Barnet Film Office, we provide a one-stop service for managing filming and photography on behalf of the council.  All professional filming and photography on council land or public roads is licenced by us and our work is guided by the principles of the London Filming Partnership.

We collect location fees for the council. We work closely with council departments such as Highways, Parking, Housing and Leisure, the Metropolitan Police Film Unit and resident, community and trader associations to ensure all filming is managed legally, safely and smoothly.

One of our principal aims at the Barnet Film Office is to make sure filmmakers respect the people who live and work in the community and we will negotiate to ensure that the community benefits fully from the advantages of filming in their borough.
