TESTIMONIALS from our friends in the film industry

Thank you again for all your efforts to provide us with our permit in a very short time frame.  It is a blessing that there are people like you that go "above and beyond" in helping provide solutions for our industry.  I know that these last minute requests have become a norm - but there are not a lot of people who would be this accommodating.  Again, many thanks from myself, our crew and client - for your name came up several times in praise as we were capturing this spectacular footage.

    "Working with Film Riverside County was a joy. Stephanie and Bettina always answered any questions promptly - they were also always thinking of ideas to help, utilizing their excellent local knowledge and contacts. If you're thinking of filming around the area, get in touch with the team - they'll do their best to assist you in any way they can."

"Hi Stephanie-

I just wanted to send you a huge and sincere THANK YOU! You single handily saved my short film. My crew and I really appreciate your kindness and speedy  turnaround for this permit! There need to be more people like you in this world.


Thanks again, you rock!"

"Hi Stephanie!

I just wanted to thank you for all the help you provided in finding our playground location. The film likely wouldn’t have gotten made without the generosity of Riverside County and your support in navigating the  permit and finding the perfect park. For a group of independent filmmakers pursuing their passion, I really can’t tell you how much that means to us.

So, again, thank you very, very much. 



"Hi Stephanie - and all at RCFilm:

I just wanted to send out a thank you to all who helped us over the past few months in finding and securing locations for our TV show "Finding Miles" - everything went smoothly, and we were very pleased with the service and assistance you provided to us for our first time to shoot in Riverside County  

Thank you, and keep up the great work!"

"If you are looking for an extremely helpful and delightful experience permitting your next film shoot... look no further than the Riverside County Film Permit Office! Just when I was beginning to think that film friendly no longer existed anywhere in the vicinity of LA I luckily found Riverside! Stephanie was hands down the most easy to work with person that I have dealt with at a permit office in years! I can't thank them enough for helping make our film shoot a success!"

"Many thanks to you and your team.  It has been a genuine pleasure to work in Riverside County.  I’m a fan and will be back again. Until next time, be well and thanks again."

"When we lost our location at the last minute we called the Riverside County Film & Television Office. They  had an even better location scouted and proposed to us within the hour. We cannot say enough great things about the Riverside County Film & Television Office, their enthusiasm for our production was evident from the first moment we made contact. They are a one-stop shop for everything that you need for production and the Riverside area is filled with wonderful locations and filming opportunities."

Carrie and I wanted to thank you both for all of your help getting us permitted and getting us the sales tax waiver.  Everything little thing makes such a big difference when making the lower budget films.  It was such a pleasure to film in Idyllwild and it was so easy to work with both of you.  It's hard to come back to LA after that! 

Now that we know the locations available and how much easier it is, we plan to do more filming in the Inland Empire and Idyllwild if possible. 

Thank you again, we appreciate everything you did."

"Just wanted to reach out to thank you and your staff for all the help and assistance given us over the past several weeks relating to SMUGGING FOR GANDHI. Stephanie has simply been wonderful and I appreciate your efforts to get us into the County Supervisor's Offices to explore filming amongst other things. It's really been a pleasure dealing with all of the City and County officials in Riverside and look forward to meeting you one of these days.

“Stephanie, I want to thank you for the permit and access to Rancho Jurupa Park today. The location was wonderful, and the staff was super-friendly. We had a really great shoot, and we couldn’t have done it without the film-friendliness of Riverside County and RivCo Parks. Seriously, you’re awesome!”
