Film Huntington Beach

Huntington Beach takes pride in being film friendly, and because of that we've taken measures to ensure that your filmmaking process is a smooth, efficient, and enjoyable one.

The ten miles of coastline offers a variety of amazing looks - from our beautiful pier, open white-sand beaches, to the rocky backdrop of dog beach. We allow cars on the beach for driving shots, have ample coastal parking, and of course, we're the perfect spot to film a surf scene. But there's much more than just the beaches. We invite you to browse through our online location gallery to see the vastly different types of locations in Huntington Beach.

Huntington Beach is located in Orange County, California, partially within the 30-Mile Zone. It covers 28 square miles of land and 26 square miles of water. Surf City USA's near-perfect sunny, dry, and cool climate is ideal for filming. High temperatures rarely exceed 85°F (29°C) and lows rarely fall below 40°F (4°C).

The Huntington Beach Film Commission is proud to offer free assistance to film, television, photographic and commercial productions working within the city. With an understanding of the filming process and a thorough knowledge of Huntington Beach, we help productions take advantage of a city that has much to offer filmmakers.
