North Carolina is one of the top ten U.S. location destinations for film and television productions – a position it's held for more than 20 years.
The state's globally-acknowledged film industry boasts a track record of more than 800 motion pictures, 14 network and cable television series, and thousands of national and regional television commercials. With locations ranging from the tallest mountain peak in the Eastern U.S. to 300 miles of coastline, easy permitting, a crew base of approximately 4,000 professionals, a solid infrastructure with a million square feet of studio space and a myriad of support services, North Carolina provides a film-friendly backdrop for a production of any size or budget.
Since 1980, when the N.C. Film Office was established and began tracking the industry's financial impact on the state, productions have generated more than $9 billion in revenues.
