Georgia Governor Brian Kemp says television and film productions spent $4.4 billion in the state during fiscal year 2022, a new industry record.
Thirty two feature films were shot in Georgia, in addition to 36 independent films, 269 television and episodic productions, 42 commercials and 33 music videos between July 1, 2021 and June 30, 2022.
“When the pandemic struck, we worked hard in Georgia to communicate with our partners in the Georgia film, TV, and streaming industries, ” said Governor Kemp. He added, “We’re proud to be training more Georgians to be decision-makers in film and television production, keeping their talents in our state, and we look forward to this industry’s continued success in the Peach State.”
This fiscal year, movies filmed in Georgia claimed four of the top six spots for highest domestic-grossing movies: “Avengers: Endgame,” “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” “Black Panther,” and “Avengers: Infinity War.”
Other industry developments in the last year include Reynolds Capital announcing the company would invest $60 million in a new soundstage development in Athens, Georgia. Athena Studios will initially have 350,000 square feet of stage and mill space as well as a building for University of Georgia and the Georgia Film Academy to teach film production to students.
