Could your premises be used as a film location?

Besi Besemar November 27, 2014

The Nick Cave film 20,000 Days on Earth, released earlier this year, and Channel 4 drama The Fear are among film and TV productions shot partly on location in Brighton & Hove.

Film Friendly City

A PUBLIC information session is being held for people interested in finding out whether their home or business premises could be used as a location for filming at the Sallis Benney Theatre in Grand Parade, Brighton, on Saturday December 6 between 1.45pm and 3.45pm.

The locations event is being organised by Creative England and Brighton & Hove City Council as part of work to support the local economy by encouraging more filming in the city.

This follows Brighton & Hove being officially designated a Film Friendly City in April in recognition of its growing importance as a film and TV location, and centre for creative talent and film related businesses.

Television and film productions are constantly looking for new and interesting properties or land to use as film locations ā€“ whether it is it a pub, warehouse, cinema, cottage or church – and the session will provide information on what is involved. People will have an opportunity to add their details to Creative Englandā€™s national locations database if they wish to do so.
