We will make every effort to provide parking for essential production vehicles close to your filming location, but note that parking is subject to availability and is not guaranteed. The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) must approve any requests for parking exceptions (i.e. rush hour waivers, parking in "no parking" areas, etc.).
Volume is higher during particular times of the year, so you should try to submit your request to the Office of Cable Television, Film, Music & Entertainment., at least:
- Three (3) full business days prior to the first day of work when requesting filming; or
- Five (5) full business days prior to the first day of work when also requesting parking.
Applications received by 9am are considered a full business day.
