Film Permits

A film permit is required to conduct a film, video or still photography shoot on a public right-of-way or other public property in the City of Miramar. 

The City of Miramar's Office of Marketing and Public Relations reviews and approves or declines all film permit requests; however, the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward Office of Film & Entertainment now processes all film permit applications. It liaises with City of Miramar to facilitate production needs, ensure compliance with City regulations, and provide important information to help keep film projects on schedule and on budget. The Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward Office of Film & Entertainment also provides guidelines, details, restrictions and recommendations for film permits.
