Baltimore Film Office
The Baltimore Film Office was created by the City of Baltimore in 1979 in response to the need for a central point of contact for the film industry. Since then, hundreds of feature films and television shows and thousands of commercials, documentaries, music videos, independent and student films have been filmed in our city. The Baltimore Film Office serves as the official liaison between production companies and city agencies, providing access to city services and expedited permits for the purpose of economic development. We also serve as liaison between production companies and businesses, crew and communities, engage in educational outreach and market Baltimore as a first class location for film production. We are a long standing member of the Association of Film Commissioners International and have over 30 years of experience working in and with the film industry. The Baltimore Film Office is a division of the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts. The Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts (BOPA) is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization which serves as Baltimore City’s official arts council, events agency and film office. We look forward to having you film in Baltimore!
