COVID-19 Film Permits

The Arts, Culture and Events office is following the direction of the Provincial Health Officer and are not currently issuing film permits. Creative BC is working with the Province to establish safe workplace guidelines for the film industry to return to work during phase 3 of the BC restart plan. Arts, Culture and Events staff are available to discuss productions that may return to Victoria in the coming weeks, and we look forward to welcoming film productions back to Victoria soon.
