Georgia’s film industry has reached a new milestone. Gov. Nathan Deal announced Thursday that a record 455 film and television projects were shot in the state during FY18.
The film industry directly spent $2.7 billion on those projects and generated a total economic impact of $9.5 billion, according to the governor’s office.
In a press release, the governor’s office said Georgia has become a top film location in the U.S. since the Georgia Entertainment Industry Investment Act was signed into law in 2008. In 2007, the film industry directly spent $93 million in Georgia. The act offers tax credits to companies that spend a certain amount on film production in Georgia.
