Filming with DFDS

Filming with DFDS

We work with news crews, television production companies and students to facilitate filming on our routes.

We do not charge a fee for news and documentaries when the story is about the ferry industry or our services and provided your production crew is fewer than five people. A fee will apply for all other filming, including commercial productions, educational films and student films.

We will not permit filming on board our ships for the following:

  • Corporate productions and advertising
  • Charity films (unless in support of national seafarers charities, the RNLI, the Royal British Legion or regional charities in the areas from which we operate)
  • Reality / talent shows
  • Under no circumstances will we allow you to interview or film our ferry Captains on the bridge of the ship during the crossing
  • Requests to film on the Newhaven-Dieppe service

Please complete and submit an application form to Kathrine Reippurt at kanie@dfds.com at least ten working days in advance of your proposed date of travel.

Due to the pandemic, we can’t accept filming requests at the moment. We are sorry for the inconvenience caused.
