Georgia is progressively becoming a center point of quality film production, as the country was home to an expected 242 film productions in the midst of a pandemic in 2020.
The Southern U.S country has a “production agreeable” tax incentive program and therefore, many projects get shot in the Peach State. From 2020 to 2021, productions like Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther,” Sony’s “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” and Netflix’s “Ozark” filmed in the state.
In the state’s financial year 2020, film production added $2.2 billion to the state’s economy. Also in its financial year 2019, Georgia was home to 399 productions, rounding up $2.9 billion. Productions in the state have utilized an expected 96,000 people.
Georgia is at the core of the entertainment world, yet it’s only one out of 31 states with production incentive programs.
A few states want to draw productions from Georgia, partially, because of continuous controversies around proposed charges identifying with womens’ reproductive rights and voting laws. These issues have driven a few film production to take steps to blacklist making of movies or TV shows in Georgia.
