Provincetown offers many landscapes and vistas that attract both tourists who wish to preserve their memories from Provincetown and professional filmmakers who seek those perfect shots for their productions.
The Town has a long history of welcoming and supporting artists and the Town does not have any fees for film permitting per se. However, if your project involves filming on town property and if at any time filming obstructs the flow of pedestrian or vehicle movement, then the filmmaker is required to have a police detail assigned to the project and cover for those expenses. Producers are advised to plan their project ahead because Commercial Street gets very busy during our busy, summer months.
Also, if as a film-maker you intend to shoot on any town owned property, including the beaches, then you will need to provide the Town evidence of liability insurance for $1million minimum indemnifying the Town.
If one intends to shoot on property within the Cape Cod National Seashore Park, you will need to contact the park to receive a film permit from CCNS.
If one intends to shoot at Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum, please contact PMPM directly.
