Film Permits

The Georgia Film, Music & Digital Entertainment Office does not issue filming permits. In general, permits are not required for shooting on private property (beyond the owner’s permission) unless public property is impacted. Some municipalities and state and federal agencies may require permits to shoot at certain locations within their jurisdiction.

You can contact the county Camera Ready Liaisons or call the appropriate municipality or agency to inquire about rules, restrictions, and permitting for your desired location.

Below is a list of municipalities and agencies that require film permits or have posted filming guidelines. This is an evolving list, and permit links will be added as our office is made aware of them. NOTE: Any city permits are listed under the county name.
