Our goal in working with you is to make the film permit process as simple and efficient as possible to assure that your project is successful and your deadlines are met! In order for us to accomplish this, it is necessary for you to complete the Film Permit Application and return it to the Film Permit Office located in the Lifeguard Headquarters at 103 Pacific Coast Highway or contact us at (714) 536-5281.
Once the application is received, a determination can be made if your project requires a City film permit. If a permit is required, a City Representative will contact you to coordinate the permit process to assure that all City requirements are met and all fees are paid prior to filming. This will include providing the City with approved insurance and the City's temporary business license. Additional fees may be imposed if police, fire, lifeguard, and/or postings are needed.
For a 48-hour processing, the application, insurance, and business license must be approved and issued no later than Tuesday of any given week. We cannot guarantee approval of a rush application.
In addition to the Film Permit Office, you may also contact the Huntington Beach Film Commissioner at the Huntington Beach Marketing & Visitors Bureau (714) 969-3492 for assistance with locations and/or accommodations.
