Film Las Cruces is the film permitting authority for Doña Ana County, the City of Las Cruces and the City of Anthony. Use this application to request a filming permit in any of these three jurisdictions. Guidelines and frequently asked questions for each jurisdiction can be found here using the links below.

The Film Las Cruces Film Permit Application provides our film office with important information about activities that may have an impact on right-of-way considerations as well as the local government's ability to provide emergency services to the public. Filming requires Film Las Cruces approval and may also require additional permits from other City/County departments.

It is the responsibility of applicants to conform to current laws and requirements and to ensure that the conduct of approved filming takes place in an orderly fashion within the prescribed dates, times and locations, whether public or private, within Doña Ana County, consistent with the representations made by the applicant in the approved application. Failure to comply with requirements established by City/County departments may result in filming delays.

Please contact us as far in advance as possible of any planned filming to get your Film Permit Application reviewed and approved. While we require a minimum of three (3) days in advance of the film shooting date for approval of your film permit, you should call the Film Las Cruces office as soon as you have tentative dates for filming. Additional approvals from other City/County departments may be required and you should plan for ample time to secure those permits.
