The Miami-Dade Office of Film and Entertainment welcomes production back with safety in mind

To ensure public health, New Normal guidelines will be strictly enforced, including mask use and social distancing

MIAMI ( September 23, 2020 )

The Miami-Dade County Office of Film and Entertainment is issuing film/TV/photo permits for County-owned properties, parks and unincorporated areas. Most municipalities are also issuing permits.

The screen production industry will be required to follow “The New Normal – A Guide for Residents and Commercial  Establishments" (subject to change). More information is available online.

Specific rules for hair and makeup departments on film/photo sets are also available online.

Miami-Dade County‘s COVID-19 case numbers have been the lowest since June. Productions are adhering to the “New Normal" rules, and are taking the pandemic situation very seriously. Miami-Dade Police also are on hand to assist with “New Normal" rules enforcement.

"We welcome Film, TV and print productions back to Miami-Dade County," said Chief of Film and Entertainment Sandy Lighterman. "The screen production industry is an economic generator and we are seeing cast, crew and businesses go back to work in a healthy and safe way."

Additionally, the Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau has created the #PracticeSafeSets Program. Over 80 hotels are offering a variety of flexible, safety–first production options: from sequester/quarantine scenarios for actors and crew, to using Miami hotels as filming locations and using ballrooms for building sets in order to safely accommodate production needs.

Any production looking to film in Miami-Dade County should visit the Office of Film and Entertainment's website.
