Filming in the Daytona Beach Area

Volusia County requires a film permit in order to film on county-owned properties. A film permit application must be completed and submitted at least ten (10) business days in advance for commercial filming. A permit for filming is not required for news productions, still photography and public service productions. Special event insurance must be purchased.

Please review the Film Motion Photography Policy

A link to Volusia County's film permit application may be found below. Please fill it out with as much detail as possible, including the number of crew on site and noting whether drones or heavy equipment will be used or if roads will need to be closed. After the application has been reviewed, the applicant will be provided with insurance requirements.

  • Film permits are issued by the jurisdiction of the filming location (state, city, county or business). Please reach out to the appropriate organization or agency.
  • For film permits on Volusia County-owned properties (including the Historic Courthouse, Volusia County parks and roads), complete the Film Permit Application.
  • Example of Certificate of Insurance
  • Applications submitted after 5 p.m. will not be received until the next business day.
  • Film permits involving a request for road closures, traffic control, closing off public areas, etc. will take longer to process.
  • Any use of drones must comply with FAA regulations and will require additional insurance.
