Filming In Commercial Districts During the Holiday Season – City of Los Angeles

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 25, 2019 through January 1, 2020.

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 Solution Services team ( or 213-977-8600) prior to applying for your film permit.
