Welcome to the Palm Beach County Film & Television Commission’s free and easy online, One-Stop Permitting Process. Permits are issued for public property (i.e. parks, beaches, streets, sidewalks, public buildings) within 34 film-friendly municipalities and taxing districts in Palm Beach County. Please allow three business days to process a standard permit. If you need a permit processed in less than three days, please notify our office immediately. Shoots involving road closures, intermittent traffic control, closing off public areas, etc., will take longer to process.
Our office does not issue permits for the Town of Palm Beach. If you would like to film in the Town of Palm Beach you may contact our office for more information or you can contact Rob Walton, Chief Code Compliance Officer for the Town of Palm Beach at 561.227.6423 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Securing a permit requires a $1 million comprehensive or commercial general liability policy. If you are using any vehicles, watercraft or aircraft in the filming, please consult with our staff to find out what additional coverage is needed. If you have any stunts or special effects, you will need a $5 million policy. Depending on where you are filming within the County will determine how many insurance certificates you will need to pull. Once you have filled out the permit application, an email will be sent to you with the exact wording that will need to go on each certificate.
