Film Permits
A film permit is necessary to conduct a film, video or still photography shoot on a public right-of-way or other public property in the City of Hollywood. 

The City recently changed its film permitting process. Though the City of Hollywood Office of Public Affairs reviews and approves or declines all film permit requests, the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward Office of Film & Entertainment now processes all film permit applications. It liaises with City of Hollywood departments to facilitate production needs, ensure compliance with City regulations, and provide important information to help keep film projects on schedule and on budget. The Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward Office of Film & Entertainment also provides guidelines, details, restrictions and recommendations for film permits.

Visit the the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward Office of Film & Entertainment website for more information on how to apply for a film permit.


Depending on the size, scope and location of the proposed production, the City of Hollywood may require applicants to pay fees consisting of:
  • City Park Usage Fees
  • Generator / Fire Inspection Fees
  • Parking Fees
  • Police Detail Permit and Service Fees
