Insurance for the Film and Television Industry

We offer insurance policies for the Film and Television industry which protect both the production company and the venues where filming takes place. All of our insurance policies can be tailored to your specific requirements by one of our experienced brokers. We work with a panel of insurers who specialise in this niche area, ensuring that you get competitive rates and excellent terms and conditions.

Below is a summary of the types of cover available. Please contact the team here at TBI Insurance if you have any questions or to enquire about your options.

Film Producers Indemnity

Provides a cover for the additional costs incurred due to death, disability, accident or illness of nominated personnel who are imperative to the continuation of the Production e.g. Director, Lead Cast, Director of Photography, etc. Cover indemnifies the production company. Nominated personnel are required to complete a satisfactory medical declaration form.

Content Media Risk

Covers additional costs incurred due to loss or damage to the negative/tape/media of the production. Also provides cover for the risks of faulty stock, camera and processing (where most claims occur) and damage or loss whilst in transit.

Public Liability

Protection is provided to the Insured for claims made against them for death, bodily injury and/or property damage to third parties as a result of the insured’s acts of negligence. Please note that subcontractors (freelancers, independent contractors, etc) are not automatically covered. Prior arrangements must be made with underwriters to cover the liability of sub-contractors.

Multi Risks

This section of the policy provides cover for accidental loss or damage to cameras, lighting and electrical equipment, props, sets and wardrobe. This Section can be extended to include office contents whilst being used on the production.

Extra Expense

Protects the production company for increased costs by reason of an interruption to Principal Photography caused by damage to property owned by the insured or for which the insured is legally liable. In other words, provides protection to cover the costs of delays caused by material damage to property.


This Section covers money that the production company is responsible for in the course of making a production.

Errors and Omissions

Protects the production company and distributors for claims/suits for libel, slander, defamation, plagiarism, breach of copyright, invasion of privacy, theft of rights and includes the legal fees incurred in the defence of the claim. Clearance procedures and title report required. Distributors in the USA will demand this cover.

The above is a summary only. Other covers of course may be required including workers compensation, motor vehicle, personal accident (for voluntary workers), travel, marine, livestock, aviation and aviation liability.
