You'll need insurance on your project before you arrange a meeting with us. Here’s what you need to get:
Personal Injury Protection: You need to get a Certificate of Insurance with at least $1 million in coverage. You must get it from your insurance provider and have them list the City of Boston as the certificate holder.
The dates should cover the entire time you'll be filming. Have them issue the certificate to:
City of Boston
1 City Hall Square, Room 716
Boston, MA 02201
Protection against damage to City property: You need at least $5,000 in coverage. Get a security bond issued to the City of Boston. You must use a local bond company. There's usually a $50 bond fee.
Call us at 617-635-3911 if you need help finding a bond company.
Once you have insurance, you can set up a meeting with us. Learn how to start the film permit process.
