For over 40 years, the Georgia Film Office has been engaged in bringing film and television production to Georgia. The office maintains a locations database of thousands of properties, and provides scouting assistance as well as certifying projects for the tax incentive. With its temperate climate, great variety of locations, the world’s busiest airport, large crew base and pro-business focus, Georgia is now a leading destination in the world for filming.

The film and television industries in Georgia generated $9.5 billion in 2018, but the economic impacts extend much further. Countless jobs are created in the process. Everything from electricians and lighting to stage construction and real estate. This video features a few of the individuals who depend on Georgia’s booming film industry.

There’s a reason why the entertainment industry in Georgia is attracting a record number of productions. In Georgia, you’ll find one of the most competitive tax incentive programs in the country, along with a broad network of production and recording facilities, a large and skilled workforce, the latest production equipment and suppliers, gaming and interactive media developers, and technology and support services.
