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.


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 any stunts or special effects will be part of production, there is a $5 million policy requirement. 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.  Please see FAQ's for more details regarding insurance for commercial productions in The Palm Beaches.
