Film Permits

The Lands and Resources Division assists the City in coordinating film permit application requests involving all CBJ property.

Please note: If a requested location is on CBJ Parks and Recreation property, you will be required to fill out a Commercial Use Permit and pay associated fees. Parks and Rec staff will determine if filming impacts public access to the park or causes potential damage to City property.

To determine if your film location is on City property, please use the CBJ Parcel Viewer tool. The City only issues film permits for City property. The State of Alaska has a mapping tool called Alaska Mapper, which also can be used to determine property ownership.

The City requests that any film made on CBJ property use the following statement and emblem:
