THE FILM PERMIT PROCESS  


Located approximately 100 miles north of Los Angeles, Santa Barbara County's beaches, vineyards, and ranches offer prime location for filming.  All filming is required to obtain a film permit from the Building and Safety Division's Film Permit Office and pay all applicable fees unless specifically waived by ordinance. 

Please contact our Film Permit Office at (805)568-3030 or via email at filmpermits@countyofsb.org for more information regarding your filming needs.
