Filming in military facilities
A large number of the Serbian Army’s locations and facilities all over the country is available for film productions. These include military centres, sport halls, barracks, swimming-pools, ballrooms, etc. (see here enclosed list with prices and contact data).
All applications for shooting in the facilities of the Ministry of Defence and the Serbian Army should be submitted to the Serbian Ministry of Defence’s PR Department. Applications should be signed and verified by prospective users. Regardless whether production houses contact directly the user of the facility or the relevant MoD or SA organisational unit, the application should be submitted at least 10-15 days before you plan to start shooting, and the following data should be included:
♦ Purpose of using the facility and the space (occupation of the facilities and the space)
♦ Time period of the use
♦ List of all persons who will enter the facilities, including all required information: name; surname; citizen’s ID number; ID card number or, for foreign citizens, passport number; contact tel. no, and photocopies of all important identification documents (ID card or passport)
