Request #19-3053

I made a previous request for film permits, Request #19-2356.  I did not get all the permits I asked for.    For instance, I only got permit numbers for the Originals Pilot and Promo.  I did not get permits for seasons 1 through 5.

I would like to look up the permits myself.

What are the step by step procedures to look up film permits.  

Which website do I go too?

What do I click on once I get to the site and what do I click on next and next until I locate the permits?

Film permits are available online at You can find them by conducting an "advanced search." That option is located at the top right of the screen. You can perform an advanced search after creating an account.  Once you have created an account, follow these steps:

  1. Click on "advanced search."
  2. Click on the appropriate circle to search for "Permits."
  3. Once you have selected to search "Permits," you can select the drop down menu for "Film location" permits.
  4. To narrow down your search, you may fill in the "applicant" name. The production company names are included on the spreadsheet of permits that the City provided in response to your last request. The City does not maintain film permits by show title.
  5. Once you click "search" a list of permits will appear. 
  6. You can click on each individual entry to find information about each permit and to download the permit itself.

On behalf of the custodial department(s), our office has responded to your request and considers this request closed.
