Jersey City has been the backdrop for hundreds of feature films, series and commercials. FilmJC works with locations personnel to assure your shoot goes smoothly. To do that, we request that you read the FAQ, so you understand how we balance the needs of the production with those of the community.
**PLEASE NOTE: CURRENT FILM HOTSPOTS ARE HAMILTON PARK AND VAN VORST PARK AREAS. Check the map below and please contact us if you want to shoot in the areas in these neighborhoods. It is not guaranteed.
We invite you to take a virtual tour of some of Jersey City’s locations, from the Hudson River waterfront to the Hackensack marshes. Jersey City is home to Victorian parks, urban streets, brownstones, storefronts, basketball courts, tennis courts, high rises, commercial cityscapes, industrial areas and rich historical sites. We are one of the most diverse cities in the US.
Please don't hesitate to contact us with questions regarding locations. Contact Us For More Info
Any large footprint exterior shoot, requiring production vehicles parked on city streets, ITC or street closure must attend the monthly Engineering meeting, held in person the last Thursday of the month, except on holidays. At this meeting you will present your shoot plan or wishlist to the Public Safety, Parking and Traffic Departments for their pre-approval of your project. A separate preproduction meeting will be held with FilmJC to present to City Council.
Other productions may be required to attend a pre-production meeting with FilmJC at our discretion.
