South Florida Government Regulations

While the state and local governments of South Florida actively promote the area as a location for film production, there are certain regulations that must be followed to be authorized to film in the area. These regulations change often, and you should always consult a local attorney or the government itself for the latest regulation information.

Film Permits often are needed if filming in public locations, though it does not usually apply to residential, private, or leased city/state property. You should never assume that you do not require a permit, but should simply verify with an appropriate agency that this is the case. Such permits are often free, but require insurance with the government as a beneficiary in case of damages.

The City of Miami has three Film Offices:
Miami-Dade Mayor’s Office of Film & Entertainment
City of Miami Mayor's Office of Film & Cultural Affairs
Miami Beach Office of Film & Event Production Management
