OFEM City Seal

Welcome to the Office of Film & Event Management

The new Office of Film & Event Management (OFEM) will be the permitting authority for block parties, special events, first amendment activity, and film projects in the City of Pittsburgh. The process to apply and receive permits for these activities will remain the same as in 2022. OFEM is tasked with receiving and vetting applications for small and large-scale events and film productions within the City of Pittsburgh as well as consulting with both film and event permit applicants to ensure that industry standards, safety regulations, and city policies are followed and met. Via the Special Events Committee, OFEM also works with all City departments to ensure proper planning, coordination, and execution of all events and film projects. Additionally, it will ensure that events and film productions do not negatively impact the City’s operations and remain positive assets to the City and its residents.
