COMMERCIAL FILM AND PHOTOGRAPHY GUIDELINES
BARKERVILLE HISTORIC TOWN & PARK, COTTONWOOD HOUSE HISTORIC SITE
Barkerville and Cottonwood’s heritage buildings provide picturesque opportunities for amateur and professional photographers and are both ideal authentic locations for filmmakers. To care for these provincial heritage assets and ensure visitor experiences are not impacted, commercial film and photography activities have special considerations.
HOW TO APPLY
Commercial film and photography activities require approval by the Barkerville Heritage Trust. Requests must be submitted a minimum of 20 business days prior to the intended commercial film/photography activities to allow sufficient time for evaluation. The Barkerville Heritage Trust reserves the right to deny requests that do not support its mandate, values, and operating principles. If requests are approved, a film/photography permit will be issued. Contact information for requests can be found below.
INSURANCE & FEES
Proof of comprehensive liability insurance policy must be received by the Barkerville Heritage Trust in order for the request to be complete.
Please note that a non-refundable fee may apply. Fees are assessed based on the scope, location and crew size associated with the project. Discounts may apply once the nature of the request has been evaluated.
