Each request is reviewed individually. If the number of people on a site creates a significant impact (the impact can vary from site to site), we may discourage the activity on a weekend. Depending on the activity, you may be requested to hire police or other specific city personnel at varying rates. Feel free to call us with any questions.

Most questions that involve the Parks Department or Street Usage Division are answered in detail in the sections below. For specific information on other city agencies, please call the Honolulu Film Office directly.

You may also download all of the information in the sections listed above as a convenient Adobe Acrobat pdf file.
