North Miami and Film

North Miami has continuously been a popular place for location-shoot in the South Florida region and was known as the Film Capital of the South! Every year, dozens of film, video and photography projects take place in public spaces around the City. Film has always been a powerful vehicle for culture, education, leisure and propaganda and even fuels economic well-being.

All projects are located in different areas throughout the City, additional locations can be suggested upon request.
