The Kingston Film Office

In addition to overseeing film permitting for all City of Kingston properties, the Kingston Film Office connects industry to local talent and resources including locations, cast crew, catering, transportation, accommodations and more.

The Kingston Film Office is also developing new incentives to help offset travel and accommodations for visiting productions. Please contact us for more information.
