Commercial Film, Television and Photography Application Form

As the Garden continues to prioritize the safety of staff and visitors as part of its phased reopening plans, we are now allowing the submission of Commercial Film and Photography permit applications with new rules in place. In addition to NYBG’s Visitor Policies found here, if your Commercial Film and Photography permit application is approved, all on-site productions have to be in accordance with the NY Forward‘s current standards for media production.
