PLEASE SEE THE MESSAGE BELOW FROM Anne del Castillo Commissioner
Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment (MOME) 

Thursday June 25, 2020 12:51 pm

Dear Colleagues,

As you are likely aware, this week, New York City entered Phase 2 of Reopening, which allows certain production activity. Production is subject to the restrictions and requirements in New York State and City laws, directives, and guidance.

Pursuant to Commissioner’s Directive No. 6, the Film Office at the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment (MOME) is now accepting permit applications for production activity commencing after June 30, including principal photography with up to 10 cast and crew members. If you are news media or if your production activity does not require a permit, this date does not apply and you can begin production activity sooner. Please see MOME’s webpage for an explanation of production activity that does not require a permit, for example, filming inside a studio or using handheld equipment and a small portion of a sidewalk.

To help you comply with the production restrictions and requirements, MOME posted a Plain Language guide to Commissioner’s Directive No. 6 and an FAQ on the Film Permit website. If you have questions about what activity the 10-person limit applies to, please review the answer to FAQ question 5. COVID-19 is a rapidly changing situation, and MOME will be updating our materials regularly to reflect the latest information available. Please check MOME’s website frequently for updates.
If you have questions after reading the FAQ, please call the Film Office at (212) 489-6710. Please keep in mind that the Film Office is still operating remotely so please allow additional time for Film Permit processing.

Finally, in light of the new state Guidance for Media Production in Phase 4, we will be providing additional updates in the coming days.

Stay safe,

Anne del Castillo, Commissioner
The City of New York
Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment
