  • Changes, corrections or additions to an original permit will require a new permit application.

To film in Calgary two mandatory application forms are required and additional paperwork may be required. Please note once all mandatory paperwork and information is received a minimum of three to five business days is required for permit processing. Please complete and submit the mandatory forms as instructed and call our Film, Television & Creative Industries Team at (403-221-7886) for more information on permits and applications.

Use of City of Calgary locations and services:

Will you be using city parking, streets, parks or transit? Do you need Emergency Medical Services, City of Calgary Fire Department or Police Services on location? A permit is required.

Applications must be sent to our Film, TV & Creative Industries office a minimum of ten (10) days in advance for ALL services below, unless otherwise stated. Fees may be applicable. Learn how to apply:

The parking and street use permit is for access to parking or filming on Calgary streets, including ParkPlus, and includes all production equipment and vehicles.

Streets in the downtown core (Bow River to 12 Ave. South and 6 St. East to 11 St. West) will not be closed during the normal business day unless:

  • Adequate alternate routes are available as determined by Traffic Engineering personnel;
  • Adequate access is assured to adjacent businesses/residential areas as determined by Traffic Engineering personnel;
  • Public transit can be maintained on the portion of the street to be closed or on adjacent streets as determined by Calgary Transit personnel; or,
  • Major streets will not be closed during the high volume traffic periods. Lane closures will be considered if the impact to the public is within reason and congestion can be mitigated by issuing a public service announcement regarding the affected area prior to the event.

Calgary Police Service officers may be required to undertake traffic control duties for any on-street filming that will affect or interfere with traffic. Traffic Engineering will determine if police assistance is required prior to issuing permits. All costs associated with the hiring of pay duty officers will be paid for by the applicant.

The City of Calgary Roads will set the conditions on Street Use Permits for street, alley, and sidewalk closures. Failure to adhere to, or exceed the permit conditions, will result in the permit being revoked and all work suspended for the remaining portion of that project.

NOTE: The applicant must sign the front page of the permit, at the bottom left corner where is says "Applicant's Signature" and sign/initial the bottom of the second page entitled "Street Use Permit Conditions" and a copy must be on location at all times.

All film production vehicles must display a valid parking permit in the windshield of each parked vehicle. Vehicles not displaying a valid permit may receive parking tickets. Film crews are not allowed to park vehicles in front of fire hydrants, driveways, within five metres of other areas as deemed by The City of Calgary, Traffic Engineering. Vehicles may be ticketed and towed in these cases.

If it is necessary to tow a vehicle that is parked in a signed area, the Location Manager must call the Calgary Parking Authority Enforcement Section at (403) 537-7100. It is illegal for the production company to request a towing company to move a vehicle; this is the responsibility of the Calgary Parking Authority.

 

The City of Calgary owns many facilities that are generally available to the film industry. These include the Municipal Building (excluding Council Chambers), City Hall complex, parks, pathways, recreation facilities, landfill sites and warehouses.

Production companies must remember that The City requires these facilities to serve Calgarians on an ongoing basis; therefore filming may be limited and will not be permitted if it severely impacts The City's ability to function. Filming in certain locations may not be allowed and facilities may have specific conditions for filming. Previously booked events will take precedence.

The City Clerk's Office must provide approval for any film inquiries involving the Municipal Building Atrium, Municipal Plaza and Historic City Hall.  A walk through inspection facilitated by a representative of the Film, Television & Creative Industries office in conjunction with the Location Manager for the production and a Corporate Properties & Buildings representative will take place before filming to facilitate the request.

Fees and security deposits will be negotiated in conjunction with The City department responsible for the facility, the Film, Television & Creative Industries office and the Location Manager. If access to buildings or grounds is granted, all associated costs including service staff and City security will be charged to the production company.

Use of Calgary Transit facilities require the approval of the Calgary Transit Director or designate.

 For dedicated medical stand by, Here are a few options:

 

The permission of the Fire Chief is required if a film production company wishes to film Fire personnel, vehicles, equipment, buildings, uniforms, etc. The request must be made in writing to the Calgary Fire Department. All pertinent details of the script involving the Fire Department, as well as a brief outline of the film.

The Calgary Fire Department is recognized as an industry leader and has established an impeccable reputation.

If the use of a fire hydrant is required, contact the Film, TV & Creative Industries office. Water Services will inspect the fire hydrant and the film production company's staff will be trained on its use. After completion of filming, Water Services will re-inspect the hydrant. If the hydrant is damaged, Water Services will repair the hydrant and bill the film company for costs incurred.

If a Fire emergency occurs, the Fire Department's use of the fire hydrant shall supersede any other use of the hydrant. The Fire Department must be provided with unobstructed access to the fire hydrant for the duration of the emergency.

Information about filming in the City of Calgary:

See below for information on when filming is permitted, guidelines for notifying residents and businesses and code of ethics for production companies.

Hours for filming, move-ins, move-outs and related activities are:

  • 7 a.m. - 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday
  • 9 a.m. - 10 p.m. on Sundays and Holidays

If loud noises are expected during filming, a noise exemption request must be submitted to The City of Calgary’s 311 department and approved by Bylaw Services for filming in both residential and non-residential areas between the hours of 10 p.m. - 7 a.m. The assigned Bylaw officer will advise the applicant on what type of notification to the public is necessary.

Although a noise exemption request must be made for filming activities in commercial, industrial and the non-residential areas of the downtown core, Bylaw Services will have increased flexibility in their approvals for these areas. All requests are subject to the conditions outlined in the Use of Special Effects, Weapons, Explosives, Stunts, Loud Noises or Helicopters.

An information letter must be delivered to those residents and businesses directly impacted by the closure of a street, alley or sidewalk, including road detours, or being subjected to the lights and/or noise of the film crew on set. This letter must also be delivered if the on-street parking is affected by film production vehicle parking. A copy of the written notification must also be submitted to the Film, Television & Creative Industries office who will subsequently provide a copy to The City's operations centre (311), 911 Dispatch, the Aldermanic office for the applicable wards, Bylaw Services, Community Associations and Business Revitalization Zones where applicable. Prior to distribution, please send a draft of the information letter to Calgary Economic Development for review and approval to jmotiuk@calgaryeconomicdevelopment.com

The production company should place a sign(s) on the sidewalk in the area advising public that filming is taking place. Filming involving loud special effects, gunfire, etc. requires a larger notification area within the general vicinity.

The information letter should be printed on the Behind The Scenes’ template along with company letterhead and include:

  • Title of the production
  • Contact information for the production office
  • Brief details on the project
  • The dates and times crews will be working in the area
  • Description of what the crew will be doing
  • Where production vehicles are permitted to park, including any closures, detours or after hours filming that may affect the area;
  • The name and phone number of the Location Manager and the Assistant Location Manager (primary contact);
  • After the location manager(s) information the following sentence should be included: “For more information regarding filming in Calgary contact the Calgary Film Commission (403) 221-7886.” (secondary contact); and,
  • The letter should also encourage the public to contact 311 to receive after hours (24/7) information and service.

Download a blank letterhead template:

 

The production company should ensure its staff acts in a safe and professional manner. This includes refraining from trespassing, littering, lewd or improper language or dress.

Information for property owners, extras and production staff.

If you are the owner of a property being used in a film production, here are some things to consider:

  1. Initial contact is generally made by a Location Scout or Location Manager, who is hired locally by the film company. This person will be your contact during the duration of the "shoot". Call the Calgary Film Commission at (403) 221-7886 or the Directors Guild of Canada at (403) 217-8672 to check the credentials of the scout and/or the project.
  2. Agree upon the exact number of days required for the shoot plus preparation and wrap time. (A shooting day is approximately 14 hours long.)
  3. Arrange for a walk-through with the Location Manager to determine exact interiors and exteriors desired for filming; where equipment and vehicles will need to be positioned or parked; any "off-limits" areas specified by the owner; and any areas such as roof, trees, fences, windows, which may need to be used or altered during filming.
  4. Decide what of your (the owners’) personal property may be used for filming; how and where to store items not used; and who will be responsible for packing and moving.
  5. Determine who will be allowed on "set" during period of use.
  6. Set rules regarding: smoking; use of washrooms; laundry; water; electricity; kitchen; protective floor coverings; trash, etc.
  7. Establish guidelines for production company's use of owner's phone and how payment will be made to the owner.
  8. Determine with the Location Manager where cast and crew will be eating their meals.
  9. Decide how the owner will be accommodated during filming and any living expenses that may be required.
  10. Set vehicle parking for cast and crew.
  11. Find out the nature of the project and how your location will be used. Will there be special effects like smoke, fire or gunshots?
  12. Establish clean-up requirements, who is responsible and when it is to be completed (within 24-48 hours), and arrange with the Location Manager for a final "walk-through" for the owners’ approval.
  13. Recognize that location fees are negotiable. The owner should feel comfortable with the amount agreed upon, and a payment schedule should be established prior to any filming.
  14. Create a written agreement detailing specifics – the owner may wish to add the following: "The applicant (film company) agrees to indemnify owner and to be solely and absolutely liable upon any and all claims, suits and judgments against the owner and/or applicant for personal injuries and property damages arising out of or occurring during the activities of the applicant, his (its) employees or otherwise. This agreement may be revoked at any time." A principal or agent of the production company should sign this contract.
  15. Owner must get a certificate of insurance including a hold harmless clause for protection in case of any injuries on the property. All production companies should carry insurance policies that cover third-party rentals for property damage and liability. A photocopy of the insurance certificate should be given to the owner before any crew comes on the property.

People choose to do Background work for many reasons; it’s a way to gain experience on a film set or to earn additional money or an opportunity to meet friends and other members of the community. Regardless of your reasons, you should take your participation in the production seriously and you should always conduct yourself in a professional manner. Please read the following section carefully if you are interested in doing background work.


The best way to get started is to contact each of the Casting Directors who handle Background on our list and inquire about getting into their database of performers. Chances are, they will require a photo and resume including details such as birth date, height, weight, current hair colour, etc. Remember, not all Background Casting Directors are the same and they may not all be looking for new people.  

For more information please visit ACTRA Alberta.  

New to working in the industry? Here are a few tips and tricks that can help you get started:

  1. You are a professional performer. You can help guide other performers through the production day. Someone once helped you. Always set the example of how professionals should behave.
  2. Remember - your word is your bond. If you accept a booking, you are committed to that production. Do not cancel!
  3. A professional always arrives 10 minutes before the call time, prepared to work.
  4. Be organized to show your wardrobe to wardrobe assistants quickly.
  5. Be clear on call time, location and wardrobe before you say goodbye to the casting person who telephoned you, no matter how hurried he/she may be. If you are not sure, ask questions.
  6. If you are still not sure, get the name of the production company and call their office.
  7. Be clear to whom you are talking to. Know the wardrobe assistant's name and hair person's name. Ask.
  8. Know the name of the A.D., P.A., or Casting person who is signing you in and out. Direct questions to the relevant person. You will save your time and theirs.
  9. Follow instructions. When you are moved from place to place, go quickly and quietly.
  10. Keep your holding area clean. Craft service people appreciate your help. Don't argue with them. Keep clean whatever area is set up for a craft service. You will get more by helping in this area than fighting. If something is needed, ask. For example, if you need an aspirin, ask the craft service person, not an A.D. Better still, bring your own. Bring the following items: a pen, spare change (for the pay phone), something to read.
  11. Do not bring valuables to a production.
  12. Don't bring food, drinks or anything that is not part of the set onto the set.
  13. Respect the set and don't rearrange things to suit yourself.
  14. Don't rearrange your hair, make-up or wardrobe for personal comfort after a master has been shot. That hat, scarf or coat (buttoned or unbuttoned) may well be in continuity.
  15. Do your job and remember your action. Give the same action each time.
  16. Listen attentively. Don't make the A.D.'s repeat instructions.
  17. Be aware of equipment and what the camera is doing. Learn to know when you are in frame and when you are not.
  18. Time your washroom visits for slack periods.
  19. If you do go to the washroom, or for a cigarette, tell the A.D., P.A., or Casting person responsible for extras where you are going. Don't wander off. Do return immediately.
  20. If you have a commitment to other work that could limit your ability to do overtime, tell the person responsible for extras  as soon as you arrive at work. Be sure he/she understands and that you don't get caught in a continuity situation.
  21. Keep a good attitude through the day (it could be a long one). A positive outlook can make the day go faster and more pleasant for everyone.
  22. Return your wardrobe at the end of the day as nicely as you received it.
