Open/Accessible Sites

3-23-20 – Due to COVID-19 concerns, the State of Hawaii is suspending film permits for State locations until further notice.  Many of our State and County parks, beaches and facilities are closed.  We ask that productions respect these closures in this unprecedented time as we work collaboratively with Federal, State and County agencies in the State to limit the spread of Coronavirus.  For inquiries, you may email:  [email protected].  The Hawaii Film Office staff is working remotely at this time and anticipates responding to emails within 2-3 business days.  Thank you and we appreciate your patience and understanding during this time.
