Local Crew And Facilities

The Kent Film Office has linked with Creative England in their drive to create a National Crew and Facilities directory and does not maintain a separate database for Kent Crew. If you are looking for local crew for your Kent based production, you can find listings or list yourself and your company on the Creative England Crew and Facilities Database, where you can refine your search to county level.

If you think we can help further please Contact Us.
