Filming in Tyler

Texas Film Commision Film Friendly Texas Community LogoThe City of Tyler welcomes filmmakers to the Rose City. We see filmmaking as an art form and powerful industry that creates jobs, tourism, businesses and trade.

A film permitting ordinance was adopted by the City of Tyler to facilitate the work of filmmakers from Tyler or those who travel to Tyler for special projects. We work hard to expedite the application and review process and to assist filmmakers wherever possible.

Tyler earned the Texas Film Friendly designation of the Texas Film Commission in 2016, recognizing Tyler as Man Operation Cameraa community that welcomes filmmakers and has a bounty of filming sites, natural resources, unique architecture and talent to include in any production.

Please see the links to the right to access information about Tyler's architecture, history, culture and natural beauty. Below you will find links to our film permitting ordinance and application form.
