The Charlotte region boasts a superior production environment. In addition to being home to major equipment companies and an unbelievable variety of locations, a talented crew base are located here. The robust talent and film expertise is complemented by a welcoming community eager to support film.
From signature sports arenas and venues to picturesque rivers and lakes, the region touts a never-ending array of options and location opportunities. Because of this variety, the city shines as a multitude of settings. From a sleepy Southern town to the Middle East to our nation's capital, Charlotte has transformed into each of these diverse backdrops.
Film Complements Tourism
Film has a synergistic relationship with tourism. Crews that utilize Charlotte as a backdrop stay in area hotels, eat in local restaurants and rely on Queen City service providers, creating valuable tax revenue that benefits the Charlotte community. Over the last several decades, the industry has also created a unique talent pool in the city with jobs that rely on and are dedicated to the filming that takes place here.
In addition, film has long been one of the ways that the CRVA promotes ways to explore the destination. Visitors consistently are looking to experience Charlotte just like the cast and crews did for major productions such as The Hunger Games, Homeland, Delilah, Shallow Hall, Days of Thunder and more. CRVA also markets this rich filming history as a competitive advantage to generate awareness and increased visibility for Charlotte.
