Coronavirus (Covid-19)

To prevent the spread of coronavirus (Covid-19), the film commission office will be closed until 3 April. We remain available by e-mail and phone during this period. All pending requests and new applications will be processed.

We ask productions currently working in Brussels to keep us informed, via their locations managers, of the cancellation or postponement of projects. This will allow us a clear overview of the situation and to think about possible solutions.

We invite everyone to strictly follow the guidelines issued by the government.
