City of Beverly Hills Response to Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)

We are currently accepting applications for Film and Still Photography Permits:

  • For 15 or less people (i.e. essential cast+crew+background) in residential areas, so long as the location serves as a “closed set” (e.g. closed to the general public),
  • all activity is contained on private property (e.g. no filming or photography on or from the sidewalk or other public right-of-way),
  • all production vehicles (including personal cast/crew cars) are parked on private property at location or offsite (i.e. no street parking or use of another property within walking distance),
  • cast/crew are staged either on private property at location or offsite but not within walking distance,
  • all filming/photography activity stays within normal hours (8AM-9PM, Monday-Saturday; 9AM-8PM, Sunday), and prep/strike days are restricted to 8AM-6PM (9AM-6PM on Sunday).

Please note that City Parks and commercial properties situated in transitional zones (i.e. commercial properties that abut residential areas) will be treated as residential areas. Restrictions for residential areas will apply to these properties.



For filming and still photography in commercial areas, the City is now accepting applications for large-scale productions (i.e. 15-plus cast+crew).

  • Although there is no restriction on cast/crew size, each and every space (e.g. filming locations, staging areas, makeup/wardrobe stations, etc.) must remain a “closed set” (e.g. closed to the general public) at all times while cast or crew members occupy them.
  • Requests for street parking will be considered on a case-by-case basis, bearing in mind that any area where production vehicles are parked must also remain a “closed set” environment.
  • Many city garages are now open and can be considered for production parking on a case-by-case basis.


Per Los Angeles County Health Order, gatherings outside the household, and thus special event permits, are not being issued for events until further notice. Outdoor dining and vehicle-based parades are exempted per the order, and allowed to apply for permits.

The City of Beverly Hills Filming and Special Events Office will continue reviewing future filming, photography and special event permit applications on a case by case basis.

Beverly Hills City Hall is now closed to the public until further notice and will operate as a virtual City Hall.
