Commercial General Liability (CGL)
CGL policies protect the production company against claims for bodily injury or property damage liability arising out of filming the picture. This coverage will be required prior to filming on any city or provincial roadways, or any locations sites requiring filming permits.
Coverage can be amended to include an international indemnification clause which can provide coverage if shooting overseas.
Coverage may also include auto liability for non-owned vehicles (both on and off camera). Non-owned auto liability* only applies as primary insurance in jurisdictions where the auto insurance industry is privatized (such as Ontario, Alberta, and the United States), otherwise it applies as excess insurance and another liability policy must be in force (although this is often maintained by the vehicle owner/lessor).
There is limited or no coverage for autos, aircraft, watercraft or snow machines under the Commercial General Liability coverage. Details on use of these should be advised so coverage can amended or separate policies purchased.
