Frequently Asked Questions

Have a question that's not answered here? Please feel free to contact us.

ARE PERMITS REQUIRED TO FILM IN NEW HAMPSHIRE?
There are no general filming permits in New Hampshire. You will need to fill out an application to film on state property to film at state parks, on state highways, or in government buildings and historic sites. Check with the town or city in which you are planning to film to see if they have any permitting requirements--each town can approach filming differently. Please be sure to contact local authorities and town officials should your production anticipate impeding traffic or interfering with the normal operations of surrounding businesses and community. We can assist you with this process.
 
DOES NEW HAMPSHIRE OFFER ANY TAX CREDITS/REBATES FOR FILM PRODUCTION?
