Film permits are required for all film-related activity including: commercials; feature films; documentaries; micro shoots; music videos; short films; stills photography; student projects; TV films and productions; and TV pilots or series.

You don’t need a film permit when filming a wedding ceremony or private celebration or when filming current affairs or news for immediate release.

As a film-friendly city, Cape Town is committed to fast-tracking all permit processes and making filming as easy as possible.
