Sanford is Film Friendly  
Our Downtown Sanford community loves the film industry and we wanted to prove it. So, a group of us got together to form the Film Sanford Committee working with the City of Sanford’s Communication's Office. Alongside our partnership with Film Orlando Commission, we intend to do great things in our community. We want to make sure the most updated location information is available as well as the best crew list to help make your productions a success. We also want to have a number of members that will be happy to welcome you and assist as only a local can. Sanford has many charming and versatile locations and we encourage you to check out what we have to offer.

For information on Film Permits in the City of Sanford please contact the Orlando Film Commission at 407.422.7159 ext. 216 or email Lindsey.sandrin@orlando.org or Courtney.dietch@orlando.org
