In order for you or your organization to be eligible for a filming permit, Liability Insurance is required. A CERTIFICATE OF INSURANCE must be provided to the Office of Film, Theatre and Broadcasting 48 hours in advance of your online permit application submission. (When submitting your online permit application, be sure the Company Name matches exactly the name of Insured on your insurance certificate.) The CERTIFICATE must include:
PDFs of Insurance certificates are accepted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org ONLY if sent directly by the insurance broker. We are not able to accept insurance certificates submitted by production companies or individuals.
Student Films: Students must obtain a letter from their school, on the school’s letterhead, stating the student’s name, their status as a student (i.e. full-time, in good standing) the date(s) of the shoot and the signature of the appropriate representative from the school. For students whose schools are located outside of New York City, please check with our office to see if your school’s insurance is on file with us.
A production package policy protects against many kinds of losses that can occur during an insured production. Many of the coverages are optional and their applicability depends greatly on the nature of the production.
We can underwrite complex entertainment equipment exposures. If you insure a production company via an annual Production Package policy, that policy may already have a minimal amount of Miscellaneous Rented Equipment coverage.
