FilmLA to Introduce New Permit Coordination System in March

MyFilmLA Permit System

FilmLA is committed to streamlining and enhancing the on-location filming process in Greater Los Angeles.

To support this mission, we’ve invested heavily in new technology to improve the permit application experience for film industry customers and government permit approvers. 

We are excited to announce that on March 15, FilmLA will introduce a next-generation online system – MyFilmLA – for film permit coordination.  Beginning on that day, select groups of FilmLA customers will be granted access to MyFilmLA on an invitation basis, with the goal of opening the platform to all customers by the end of the month. 

At that time we will also commence an orderly one-month phase out of our legacy permit system, OPS.  If you already have an application planned or in progress, not to worry.  Applications started in OPS will be coordinated in OPS, as for a short while it is necessary that both systems work in parallel.  

Customers already familiar with the process of applying for permits using OPS, should find many things to like about MyFilmLA, along with a different application form to get used to.        

New system features, including streamlined permissions, improved location intelligence, automated invoice generation, and easy document uploads, are just a few system benefits coming online on day one, with other features planned for release in coming months. 

To ease OPS account users through this time of transition, we’ve added a new page, FilmLA Innovation, to our website.  We invite you to review this page to learn about the coming changes and how to register for a new MyFilmLA Account. 

And as always, the FilmLA Solution Services team will continue to be your resource for production planning information and ongoing technical support, should you need it.

Thank you for filming in Los Angeles.  We look forward to serving you soon.
