Film and TV production is slowly resuming in Europe. Even after the easing or end of governments’ restrictions to prevent the spread of Covid-19, the risk of contagion will persist in the first weeks and months, if not longer.
European countries and film institutions are providing technical and organizational measures in order to help productions restart in safety during the global emergency. As the European Film Commissions Network, we are collecting these guidelines to make them available to all professionals shooting in Europe in the near future. The page will be constantly updated.
From cast and crew testing to protective equipment and on-site organization, the safety regulations are very detailed and vary within European countries. Since each filming is different, specific risk-based measures need to be established prior to the start of activities.
