When it’s not necessary to ask for a filming permit?
It´s not necessary to request a filming permit if it doesn´t obstruct the transit of vehicles and / or pedestrians through public spaces, the filming is done with a handheld camera and the film team is reduced.
However, it´s convenient to inform DÉNIA FILM OFFICE of the dates and places of the recording, and provide a copy of the civil liability insurance, in order to inform the Local Police and avoid possible problems during the recording.
