Filming activity also includes the setup and dismantling of all equipment. The film permit request process begins with submitting an application to Film LA, Culver City's contracted film coordinator for City-wide location shooting.
A separate rental permit is required to film or photograph at any Culver City park facility, including the use of any parking lot at any park for base camp, catering, etc. Please see below for contact information for the Culver City parks, Recreation and Community Services Department.
