film permits

In principle, shooting a film in Amsterdam does not require a permit. However, you should always notify the appropriate city district before making any recordings. This allows the City of Amsterdam to ensure that multiple events or activities at your chosen location are not taking place simultaneously. Also, for some activities, such as the closure of public roads or the placement of objects or props in public areas, permits, waivers or additional consent may be required.
