Film Permit Process

The City of Beaufort welcomes film/television/commercial productions, and our process is designed to maintain the greatest possible flexibility for the company or companies, while providing for the safety and well-being of our residents and businesses. We recognize the originality in each film activity and will do our best to accommodate all parties involved. These guidelines represent an attempt to balance the needs of filmmakers with the needs of businesses, residents and the public interest.
