Film shooting in Stockholm is easy!

Stockholm is a film-friendly city and for most smaller shoots you don't need a permit.

  • Permits are usually acquired when the shooting involves traffic control, using rails and lights.
  • You can shoot in all outdoor public places and only when shooting in a private property a written consent of the proprietor is needed.
  • It's always polite and respectful to ask and inform people who are being filmed in a public space.


Here are some guidelines for when a permit is needed:

  • Blocking a road or interfering with traffic or trade
  • Causing disturbance where you are shooting
  • When the vehicle is larger than 12 meters
  • Restricting public access to public place
  • Placing cables and rails on the ground
  • Where you need exemptions from traffic regulations


Planning ahead

  • For smaller shoots you need to submit your permit application at least five days befor the shoot.
  • For closing of a street, it is recommended to apply for a permit three to four weeks in advance.
  • For exemptions from the traffic and parking regulations we recoomend the permit application to be filed two weeks in advance
