The Department of Film Services (DFS) is mandated to license films as guided by the Film & Stage Play Act (CAP 222/68). To do this, all local filming agents and private production companies/individuals are required to submit their applications through a local agent. All local agents are registered by the DFS under the Ministry of Sports, Culture and the Arts.

Its mandatory for all applicants in Kenya to enroll the services of local agents. The Ministry updates the list of registered film agents on an annual basis. For more information please contact:
