FAQs


Why do I need to contact Miami Beach about a permit if this is one-stop permitting?



We work closely with the City of Miami Beach to make the permitting process easier. However, each jurisdiction has different regulations; therefore, you need to coordinate directly with the appropriate film office which covers your location.
