Lake Tahoe Film Office

A Place For All Seasons!

Filming in beautiful Placer County is a breeze. We offer FREE film permits and a wide range of resources to assist productions. We welcome all media productions to scout, film and enjoy our spectacular locations year-round. Please see the many links on our home page to get started.

The Placer-Lake Tahoe Film Office provides location photos, scouting and permit assistance, lodging, crew and support services, a production directory, and local contacts to expedite your filming needs. Placer County is truly a place for all seasons - spring, summer, fall and winter, sometimes all in one weekend, with incredible terrain that ranges from 90’ to over 9,000’ in elevation.

Here’s what you can find in less time than it takes to drive from Malibu to Hollywood
