Greater Los Angeles is the film, television and commercial production capital of the world, and the region is rightly celebrated for its creative workforce and unique collection of filming locations.
But these locations are often found in neighborhoods where Angelenos live and work. That’s why we believe all filming should be conducted with professionalism, courtesy and respect.
As a private, nonprofit organization with public sector responsibilities, FilmL.A. works with local public safety authorities to coordinate permits for on-location filming.
If filming is scheduled to happen in your neighborhood, we want to be your resource. Here are some of the things we’re doing to better serve you and your neighbors.
24 hour assistance
Help with filming in your neighborhood is a phone call away. FilmL.A. is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, but our on-call line is available 24/7 including holidays and weekends.
Every permit FilmL.A. releases reminds filmmakers of their obligations to you and your neighborhood, because each is accompanied by our 20-point Filmmakers’ Code of Professional Responsibility.
You deserve to know about upcoming filming before production trucks roll into your neighborhood. We print and distribute detailed Notices of Filming whenever production is scheduled to take place.
When a FilmL.A. Monitor is assigned to a production, he or she will interact with residents and production companies to resolve community concerns in real-time.
