Filming

We consider all requests for filming (movie, television, or commercial, etc.) or photography. 

  • 1. Permission.

    Permission to film or photograph in Perryville is granted subject to certain conditions and use. Permission can be obtained only from the City of Perryville.

  •  2. Location Fees.

    Location fees are set by the City of Perryville depending upon a variety of factors, such as the nature and purpose of the project, its intended market, its potential promotional value to the City of Perryville, the potential disruption to residents and the extent to which the City of Perryville is required to support the project.

    Please contact Trish at 573-517-2069 or via email at trish@perryvillemo.com to discuss all fees.
