City of Newport
Newport Film Protocol
The City of Newport supports the arts and will do its best to negotiate film, photograph and television production logistics. At the same time, production companies are required to review and respect the City of Newport ordinances and regulations (fire, noise, parking and traffic, alcohol, productions and use of bright lighting after dark and general nuisances).
Newport is a city of neighborhoods, so please respect the quality of life of our residents. Permits which may be required include: Street/Sidewalk Closing Permit; Reserved Parking/No Parking Permit; or Special Events Permit (for any work done in City parks). Screen credit to the City of Newport is assumed. Early coordination is the key to accommodating the particular needs of your production, so please provide as much notice as possible. Please complete the following questionnaire and forward in a timely manner to: Erin Mulligan firstname.lastname@example.org or fax at (401) 845-5447/ (401) 845-5414 for any additional questions.
If you are planning to use any of the City parks please submit the Park Use
Agreement with the Newport Film Protocol form.
