“Are film permits required in the state of Missouri?”
There is no state permit to film nor are there permits to film in most Missouri cities. Most city, county and state-owned facilities and equipment may be borrowed or occasionally rented. Permits for filming in national parks, forests, recreational areas and monuments are generally required. Public and privately-owned locations will require permission and usually proof of insurance. Advance communication with the Kansas City Film Office is recommended to prevent time consuming delays and unnecessary expenses.
