Students and faculty filming exclusively for educational purposes don't require a film permit, however, we prefer that one is applied for (the permit application fee is waived if the student and project are verified by a school/professor). Also, Miami-Dade County does not require a film permit for shoots on private property (residential or otherwise). However, if you are filming in Unincorporated Miami-Dade County, on sidewalks or streets, or parking vehicles in swale areas, then those areas need to be permitted. Noise ordinances apply to all film permitting. A permit can not be issued in residential and certain other areas prior to 7:00am or after 11:00pm. Please check with the Miami Beach Film office regarding the conditions for film/photo shoots in residential neighborhoods (see contact info below)
