Do I Need a Permit to Film in Dallas?

Permits, when needed are generally easy to obtain.  For complete information please see the “City of Dallas Permit Information” page.

Within the Dallas City limits you are required to have a Filming Permit if your production requires changes to street traffic (i.e. lane closure, street closure, intermittent traffic control, etc.), or if you are requesting to film on City of Dallas owned property.  You are not required to have a permit just to roll film or tape.

Please contact the Dallas Office of Special Events for your permit needs in Dallas.
