News & Events
New normal
The Miami-Dade County Office of Film & Entertainment is issuing film/photo permits
The information below is subject to change. 
Please check the links below and this website daily for changes.

This is the early phase of the reopening and your permit request may take longer than normal to obtain approval. We are working with our County departments and partners to establish processes for the “new normal”. Please check with our office since not all County or Municipal locations are open for productions yet.

Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez’s Initial Reopening Plan identifies non-essential businesses allowed to open Monday, May 18th 2020 with stringent capacity and safety rules in place. Businesses may wish to enforce more stringent guidelines or procedures. Municipalities may choose to follow Miami-Dade County’s guidelines or enact stricter requirements, but they cannot be more lenient. In addition, some businesses cannot reopen until a later date. Points in bold MUST be followed; other recommendations are strongly suggested.

"The New Normal – A Guide for Residents and Commercial Establishments” (subject to change) is available online

See specific requirements for hair and makeup departments on film/photo sets.

The Office of Film & Entertainment is operating at normal capacity but currently is closed for in-person meetings. For productions resuming operations, please apply for a film permionline
For assistance, as always, we may be contacted at 305-375-3288.

The information below is subject to change. 
Please check the links below and this website daily for changes.
Permitting turnaround time for permits is longer than prior due to the Covid crisis.
72-hour minimum turnaround time for permit requests.

Miami-Dade County has a countywide curfew effective from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. every day, until canceled or revised.

In an abundance of caution, to assist industry stakeholders shooting their projects on private property we are requesting all productions to register with our office (whether a permit is required or not). This is because if there are any concerns from the public, issues can be addressed through our office as opposed to Miami-Dade Police or code enforcement.

Check out our updated locations database as there are many new locations and new photographs that you can scout from your computer, tablet, or phone.
