Hi, we're the Hawaii Film Office, a.k.a. the state film commission, part of the Department of Business, Economic Development, and Tourism (DBEDT). Established in 1978, the Hawaii Film Office is the 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 office also provides location 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 and television industry in the islands.
