Our Services

The Film Services Office (FSO) co-ordinates and facilitates matters directly related to film production and location filming in Hong Kong. We provide information, liaison and support to local and overseas filmmakers. We look out for chances to widen the scope of our work in the course of improving our services. And all our services are free!

  • Production Information
    We maintain a Resource Centre and a dedicated website with comprehensive databases on application procedures for various filming locations and permits required for particular filming plans, and contact information about film production services companies based in Hong Kong. We are always ready to provide advisory service on filming related enquiries by email or on the phone.
