Many film and TV productions have taken place in and around Joshua Tree National Park. It is easy to understand why these deserts are a highly sought after filming destination. The surreal landscapes, cotton candy skies, diverse wildlife, and powerful imagery found here are recognized around the globe.

Filming permits are available to those conducting commercial shoots. Personal photography and video does not require a permit.
