  • Film Office

    The Film Office is currently experiencing a staffing shortage. Please allow yourself extra processing time when filing your permits. Please be advised that due to budget cuts and shortage of staff, the film office doors will no longer be open to the public and unable to accommodate walk-ins. Please be sure to schedule an appointment before coming in. (This includes picking up "No Parking" signs, dropping off documents, payments, scouting inquiries, etc.)

    The Pasadena Film Office is opened Monday-Friday from 8am to 5pm. The Film Office is closed on holidays and every other Friday due to a 9/80 work schedule.
