State of Hawaii Film Office

Established in 1978, the State of Hawaii Film Office is the one-stop central coordinator for film and photographic use of state-administered parks, beaches, highways, and facilities. The office works closely with state agencies to assist filmmakers with acquiring film permits, and if necessary, directs them to the appropriate county and federal agencies.

The State of Hawaii Film Office also provides location, tax incentive, and production resource information to filmmakers; manages the Hawaii Film Studio at Diamond Head; promotes Hawaii as a filming destination; and develops the local film, television and digital media industries in the islands.

Donne Dawson, State Film Commissioner.

The film office staff will work hard to ensure your Hawaii production runs as smoothly as possible.
