This page does not constitute a complete list of all movies filming in Los Angeles; it represents only some of the many films shooting in the city.

Not all of the films listed will be filming at the same time, but are generally scheduled to be filmed (at least in part) in the L.A. area. Actual filming events can begin and end unexpectedly. (Many films film in several different cities, so that only parts of them will be filmed in L.A.).

New film titles are added to the above list when they first begin production. Once listed, film titles are left on this list until the movie is released to the public. So not all films listed above are shooting on any given day, and some of them have already wrapped filming (but may return to re-shoot some scenes). Some films' may change titles before they are released.

This page was originally designed to compliment the Shoot Sheets published each weekday by the L.A. Film Permit Office. The shoot sheets list the exact addresses where each film is being shot that day, as well as the title of the film, but shoot sheets do not list the actors in the movie, the director or the film's genre. This page does - and thus fills in those gaps.

You used to be able to click on to see the most recent "Shoot Sheet" from the Film Permit Office.

Unfortunately, following 9/11, the once free Shoot Sheets have now been restricted to registered users who can prove an industry connection and a "need to know" status. You can find out more from the EIDC at
