Film Production Insurance Coverage: Some Frequently Asked Questions

A: Depending on the nature of the stunt, some film stunts are too risky to insure. While most film production insurance policies will cover some nature of stunts, there may be exclusions for acts that involve pyrotechnics, water, and stunts involving certain types of vehicles.

A: Entertainment and film insurance products are typically sold by film insurance brokers. Like with any other broker, film insurance brokers have to be licensed. Thankfully, LMBF has access to some of Canada’s top-rated film insurance brokers and is confident that it can help you find a policy best suited to your company’s needs.

A: Film production insurance, or film shoot insurance, will range in price depending on the nature of the production being produced, the length of production, the people involved in the production, where it is shot, the equipment being used, stunts (if any), etc. - and like with most policies, you can expect that the more likely you are to make a claim, the more expensive your insurance might be.

A: Depending on the nature of your film, it might not be mandatory to carry film production insurance. However, if you are renting a venue or equipment - or even props - your rental provider may require you to show evidence of insurance. This tends to be a standard requirement with most rental agreements.

A: Ideally, yes. You never know what might happen. Even if your project is only estimated to take a few weeks or even a few days to shoot, you can never know when disaster might strike. Anything could happen in a short frame of time, from a falling light to an injured actor.

A: Depending on the length of your film project, you can choose between short-term production insurance for a single production or annual production insurance for shooting multiple projects within a single year. The latter will cover all projects, whereas the former will only cover one.
