Palm Springs

In the world of film and fame, Palm Springs has been Hollywood’s back lot since the 1930s. Only two hours from Los Angeles, and with six film festivals throughout the year, Palm Springs and film go hand in hand. Feature films, television series, commercials and photo shoots have been successfully produced here for years.

The unique and diverse architecture, landscape and locations provide spectacular opportunities for filming and photo shoots in Palm Springs, California. From scenic snow-covered mountains to desert oasis, from mid-century modern architecture to red rock canyons and desert, Palm Springs offers a stunning variety both indoors and outdoors. The hip urban sensibility combined with a small town friendly and casual atmosphere makes Palm Springs a perfect location for both cast and crew…and 350 days of warm sunshine certainly helps!

The City of Palm Springs can provide you with police, fire, traffic and engineering assistance, along with street and facility services to make your filming experience easy and rewarding. Obtaining a permit is easy by completing a downloadable application and reviewing the Film Policies and Procedures. For film permit and location recommendations, please contact Janice Lopez at or at 760-323-8272 for suggestions and recommendations on locations and venues.
