The City of Newport Beach has approved an agreement with FilmL.A. establishing the not-for- profit as the film permit coordinator for the area. FilmL.A. will now accept applications for permits to film within Newport Beach city limits.
The City of Newport Beach is located in the coastal center of Orange County, with Los Angeles County to the north and San Diego County to the south. Newport Beach surrounds Newport Bay where more than 9,000 boats of all types are docked within the 21-square-mile harbor area.
The area known as Balboa Island is comprised of three sister islands (Balboa Island, Little Balboa Island and Collins Island). The Balboa’s Marine Avenue is lined with shops, galleries, and restaurants. Corona del Mar (Crown of the Sea) is home to the beautiful Corona del Mar State Beach and the Robert E. Badham Marine Conservation Area. Lookout and Inspiration Points offer scenic views of the ocean and the entrance to Newport Harbor.
A selection of publicly-owned Newport Beach properties is currently being cataloged for future inclusion in FilmL.A.’s online location library, LocoScout (www.LocoScout.com).
