Film Permitting


motorbikeFort Lauderdale has long been attractive to filmmakers who take advantage of the diversity of the City’s locations and climate. Production designers and directors love the unique character of the City’s neighborhoods and the beach, made even more popular by the Wave Wall for interesting beach driving shots.

Fort Lauderdale’s unique architectural styles and upscale ambience make it a popular film and television location.  Each year the City issues approximately 300 film permits.
