Film Tax Credits and Incentives Mean More Film & TV Productions Filmed in Georgia

Over the past 4 years, Georgia has been a hotbed for the film and television production industry with strong economic development programs targeting TV and Film Productions and generous Film tax credit and tax incentive programs. In FY14 the state saw a rise in the number of big budget box-office productions filmed in Georgia, including:

  • “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 & 2,”
  • “Insurgent,”
  • “Taken 3”
  • “Fast and Furious 7”

A statement release d by the Governor’s office said, “These films are released in theaters they will create numerous opportunities for Georgia locations to be seen by millions of people all over the world. It also gives communities in Georgia an opportunity to create tourism-based product at a filming location and beyond.”

In 2013 the Georgia Film, Music and Digital Entertainment Office launched the highly popular ComeTourGeorgia.com program to respond to the rising demand in film induced tourism. The award winning site allows fans of movies and television shows shot in GA to learn more about Georgia’s rich film history, and find movie tours, film locations, and other film-based destination and events.
