Film Permits

For filming at the State Archives, as per our administrative rule section 3-20-5(d), “Due to limitations in space, not more than one user of video recording or photocopying equipment may be permitted at a time. Previous arrangement should be made.” In addition to contacting the State Archives to set an appointment, any filming for the purpose of film, television and/or commercial use will need to secure a Film Permit from the Hawaii Film Office. Permits must be submitted five working days prior to date of filming. See for more information.
