The tax incentives the Georgia legislature continues to pass for film production companies seem to be working.
Tied with Louisiana, Georgia is No. 3 in the world for film production based on numbers released from FilmL.A. – a not-for-profit office that operates in Los Angeles. The new ranking is up two spots from 2013 when Georgia placed behind Louisiana, Canada, California, and the UK.
The 2015 rankings are based on 109 feature films. Of the 109, 12 were filmed in the Peach State and, surprisingly, California led the pack with only 7 more films and none were of the top 25 live-action films at the worldwide box office in 2015, according to the study.
During the fiscal year for 2015. Georgia was home to 248 total film and television productions and brought the state over $6 billion in economic impact – at least according to the Georgia Department of Economic Development.
