Film Friendly

The City recognizes that on-location filming is good business for the community and can positively impact the local economy.

Film Ordinance

The film ordinance is intended to create a program for promoting economic development activity within Pittsburg, and the vicinity of Pittsburg and the guidelines also help to establish a protocol that will protect the personal and property rights of residents and businesses and will promote health, safety and welfare while filming is taking place.


The Pittsburg Economic Development Corporation believes that filming is a vital and important tool for economic development. The Pittsburg Economic Development Corporation offers grants for the production of films, commercials, and TV series based on fund availability during the fiscal year starting  October 1 through September 30.
