Upcoming Deadlines: Federal law has stated that the National Park Service must require permits and charge fees for commercial filming in park areas. A film permit is not required if your intent is for non-income generating purposes.
There will be no group permit provided as has been provided in past years, so if you plan on filming for commercial purposes, make sure to fill out an application by the deadline, Monday, August 14.
Looking to pass on some knowledge or seeking advice from an industry veteran? TheMentor/Mentee Breakfast is a great chance to do so and a long-standing tradition at the Summit. If you are interested in participating but still need to register for the Summit, be sure to do so soon, as spaces are limited. Attendees who register on or before August 18th will receive priority.
