Film Production

A Film Production is any outdoor film-making proposed to block pedestrian or vehicular traffic, or to take place outdoors on public and/or private property. Professional film-making requests must be received no later than fifteen (15) days prior to the production.

It is unlawful for any Person to engage in the conduct of a Film Production on public and/or private property without first obtaining a permit from the Special Events Coordinator and paying the fee as set forth:

Public Property Film shall mean any Film Production conducted that utilizes Public Rights-of-Way (streets, alleys, sidewalks). This could include using Private Property in conjunction with Public Property. The Film permit fee assessed shall be Two Hundred Twenty Dollars ($220 plus system fees). This fee is nonrefundable. 

Private Property Film shall mean any Film Production conducted that utilizes solely private property. The Film permit fee assessed shall be Seventy-Three Dollars ($73 plus system fees). This fee is nonrefundable. 

A Film permit does not negate the additional requirements of obtaining any secondary permits and/or licenses such as Park Permits and Drone Licenses including permission from private property owners. You will be responsible to contact the relevant agencies and owners.

The applicant must upload a Letter of Support from the Tulsa Office of Film, Music, Arts & Culture into the online portal to continue the City permitting review process.
