2018-19 Holiday Filming Restrictions

FilmLAProduction Alerts

In an effort to reduce the impacts of construction, events and filming to businesses and merchants that rely on revenue generated during the holiday season, the City of Los Angeles implements a relaxation of production activity in commercial districts from November 19, 2018 through January 2, 2019.

Filming activity including lane closures, street closures and street parking will be limited in all commercial/retail areas of the City during this time period.

Individual filming requests will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis and must meet a standard of minimal impact that satisfies the Los Angeles Board of Public Works, the Department of Transportation, the local City Council office and the Los Angeles Police Department.

To avoid delays, we urge you to contact our Production Planning Department prior to applying for your film permit. The Production Planning team can be reached by calling (213) 977-8600.
