Guidelines for filming and still photography at FIU
Florida International University owns the exclusive rights to images of its building, grounds, landmarks and all other property. We own all the exclusive rights to our name, marks and official symbols. Therefore, a written permission to use any of the university’s property for filming and still photography for entertainment, commercial or freelance purposes is required.
FIU protects its name and landmarks from inappropriate commercial use but strives to cooperate with film producers and photographers interested in using FIU’s facilities.
A production will be considered in terms of its size of production, footprint, complexity and what degree it might disrupt classes and other normal campus activities. Academic business is always priority before a filming and still photo-shoot is considered.
Strategic Communications only works with commercial filming and still photo shoots. Filming permission is not required for individuals recording only for personal or private use or for employees of print or electronic news media for "breaking news" events. Students and faculty filming exclusively for educational purposes don't require our permission either.
