What does Dallas Creative Industries do?

In simple terms… the Dallas Creative Industries, formerly the Dallas Film Commission, acts as the “agent” for the Dallas area.  The commission is responsible for marketing and developing sales strategies to attract business and foster the growth of the creative media industries in Dallas, serving industry segments that produce content such as motion pictures, television, commercials, corporate videos, music videos, documentary and still photography as well as new and emerging forms of media.

The commission is also the official liaison between the creative media industries and the community, serving as a “translator”.  They are also a resource, assisting in identifying suitable venues and locations in the North Texas area as well as finding crew, equipment, housing and a wide variety of service providers.  It also acts as an advocate for growth and exposure of the local industry.

Do I need a permit to start a creative project 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.
